Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect balance between bright crisp varietal character and a gentle touch of barrel influence from the winemaker's hand. Aromas span a range of citrus notes including Meyer lemon, kafir lime, grapefruit and even kumquat. Fragrant vanilla and lychee complement before leading to juicy flavors of citrus and limecrisp and inviting. The finish is supported by fresh, dry acidity that accentuates the classic Sauvignon varietal flavor and inspires the next sip.
