The Carica 2006 Sauvignon Blanc, a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Sauvignon Musque, is made in a classic style like the great wines of Pouilly Fumé and Sancerre. With clean, tropical flavors and crisp acidity, Carica Sauvignon Blanc opens with floral notes and aromas of pineapple, grapefruit and gooseberry with a hint of toasty oak. Tasting of guava, fig and passion fruit, the wine has a prolonged, refreshing lime accented finish. A perfect accompaniment to lighter fare such as poultry, shellfish and other seafood, because of its intensity and clean finish this wine will also pair well with heartier cream based preparations.
"Vibrant and delicious, with concentrated ripe flavors of peach, apricot, mango, spice and a squirt of fresh lime juice. Intense and focused, with flavors getting an extra push on the finish."
