Winemaker's Notes:

This is a crisp clean wine with fresh ripe fruit, complex aromas and flavors of vibrant citrus, key lime, kiwi and melon with a refined creamy texture leading to a rich, long-lingering finish.

Outstandingly food friendly, pair this wine with appetizers, shellfish, seafood, poultry, pasta, mildly spicy and fusion fare, or enjoy as a refreshing aperitif.

My Notes:

About Fortress Vineyards:

Fortress Vineyards is Fess Parker's new family wine venture built around a unique vineyard site, nearly 20 years of grape growing experience and a singular pursuit of creating a Sauvignon Blanc that rivals the world's best. At Fortress Vineyards, the focus is on one wine only – Sauvignon Blanc - 100% Musque clone. The "magic and mystique of Musque" produces a truly elegant Sauvignon Blanc reminiscent of a fine white Graves wine.
