Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Sauvignon Blanc shows a straw to pale gold color with pale intensity and bright clarity in appearance. The nose shows medium plus intensity with a youthful development and aromas of lychee, pineapple, candied banana, melon and gooseberry. The palate is dry with medium plus acidity, body, flavor intensity and length, showing additional notes of grapefruit, green apple and honey. The lively, refreshing acidity and expressive fresh fruit in this wine should complement a variety of seafood dishes, as well as fresh salads and rich cheeses
