Winemaker's Notes:

Offering both classic Sauvignon Blanc style and structure, this crisp, refreshing white doesn't disappoint. The melon-pear fruit is beautifully focused with a zesty lemon-citrus aftertaste. An excellent match for light seafood or wonderful as an everyday white.

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."
