Winemaker's Notes

No oak used. A very loyal expression of terroir. Great aromatic potential. Perfect varietal typicity. Soft greenish yellow color. Very expressive. Intense pink-grape fruit aroma. Fresh, with great acidity but keeping citric aromas in mouth. Very good structure. Softness, elegance and persistence.

Sauvignon Blanc is a very food-friendly wine and terrific for appetizers such as artichoke dip, veggie dishes or dips, garlic or Italian seasonings in creamy sauces, fragrant salads - like Greek, Caesar or Garden, Thai food, fish (sushi), poultry and the list goes on.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Opalo Sauvignon Blanc is medium straw-colored with a pleasing perfume of fresh herbs and citrus. Intense on the palate, gooseberry flavors emerge to dominate the flavor profile. Crisp, vibrant, and nicely balanced, this is a Sauvignon to enjoy over the next 1-2 years. "
