Winemaker's Notes

Bartlett pears, golden delicious apples, and fresh cut hay marry seamlessly in the nose of our Sauvignon Blanc. A luscious entry on the palate leads to floral notes blended with hints of asparagus topped off with a pear reduction. The lingering finish on this wine begs for another sip followed by a fresh baguette and some hard cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and fresh, this carries just a vague hint of barrel toast, but essentially it was done all in stainless. The fruit is clean and pretty, lightly candied, lightly tropical, with notes of sweet cracker, brisk acid, sweet grass and sweet herb. It gathers strength in the finish and holds on nicely."
