Winemaker's Notes:

Classic Sauvignon Blanc nose of citrus and grapefruit with light herbal notes. Generous lime and tangerine flavors nicely accented by a touch of cream. Dry, crisp, cleansing and refreshing. This a great summer sipper and makes the palate absolutely crave for shellfish and seafood.

About Barnard Griffin Winery:

Barnard Griffin Winery was established in 1983 by Winemaker Rob Griffin and his wife, Deborah Barnard. Rob saw the opportunity to make great wine in Washington and moved north in 1977. Pleased with his move to Washington, he says "The northern latitude of Washington and the ideally drained sandy soils of the Columbia Valley make it possible to produce deeply concentrated wines of pronounced character."
