- This bright, crisp and full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc is the result of 2012's near perfect growing season.
The first impression is crisp, like an ocean breeze. There are aromas of fresh pear, honeydew melon and hints of shortbread/pastry in the mouth, with a touch of vanilla and rich sweet-tart flavors, as in an old-fashioned lemon drop. There's some minerality too, like wet stones, and the rich, full, weighty flavors eventually give way to one of the cleanest finishes around. Drink this beauty with garlic fries, bouillabaisse, grilled chicken, salmon steaks, fresh oysters, or a good BLT with ripe avocado.(from the vintner)
