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 the Gewürztraminer 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.

Very nice initial aromas suggesting ripe cantaloupe, with a bit of grassiness in the background. The ripe cantaloupe aromas fade a bit and transform into more generic melon components with somewhat more noticeable grassy components as the wine airs in the glass. Somewhat grassy citrus and melon flavors when well chilled. Melon flavor components become more prominent as the wine warms in the glass. Rich, smooth melon flavors dominate as the wine warms close to cellar temperature. Flavors seem a little out of balance while well chilled, but balance improves as the wine warms closer to cellar temperature. On second night, nice melon, citrus, and lemongrass aromas with a grassy background. Flavors on the second night similar to the first night, but with better balance while still chilled. Third night very similar to the second night. Back label suggests serving well chilled. I found it better when warmed closer to cellar temperature. Better as a food wine than as a wine for just sipping by itself unless allowed to warm close to cellar temperature. Held up well, maybe even improved a bit, after opening.
Light & Crisp
Very good sauvignon Blanc. Citrus without being overearing
Light & Crisp
Nothing special here. An ok wine for very light wine tastes
