Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Smoking Loon Sauvignon Blanc is bright but delicate with layered aromas of jasmine, green tea, and grapefruit. On the palate, tart citrus peel, grapefruit and key lime flavors meld seamlessly, with the understated grassy herbaceous notes that identify Sauvignon Blanc so well. Medium-bodied, this dry, but floral wine shows bracing acidity on the mid-palate leading to a refreshing zesty finish with lingering ruby-red grapefruit notes.

This wine's natural acidity makes it a great match with garlic grilled prawns, a nice oven-roasted halibut steak or a fresh Greek salad.
