SKU 08242


On the nose the wine shows aromatics of a slightly grassy note with plenty of citrus and tropical notes and a hint of minerality. The wine shows bright, pure flavors and good balance. The wine tastes of fresh pineapple and crisp grapefruit with a clean, crisp finish. The addition of Gewurztraminer contributes a subtle orange note to the wine on the back of the palate. A clean wine perfect for pairing with seafood dishes, grilled chicken or oysters.

Wine AdvocateThere are 10,000 cases of the 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, a 100% Sauvignon that is crisp and steely with notes of grapefruit, honeysuckle and lemon zest. Fresh, medium-bodied and surprisingly intense, this well-made, dry, impressive white should be consumed over the next year.

Wine EnthusiastPretty green and unripe, but saved at the last minute by some rich citrus, apple and honeysuckle flavors. Finishes nice and dry and acidic.

Wine SpectatorSimple and softly juicy, with lemon and apple notes and a peppery, herbal finish. Drink now.
