Tart aromas of fresh lemongrass, crisp granny smith apples and lime zest.
I tasted the granny smith apples and lime zest from the bouquet, along with tart asian pears and gooseberries. With a bit of effervescence, the wine also has zesty acidity and a slightly creamy lemon curd finish. Winemaker Jay Somers used no oak, only stainless steel, when making this wine– resulting in higher acid levels that make my mouth water. If you’re looking for a grassy Sauvignon blanc, this is not it. 😁
Food pairing suggestions:
Grilled fish fillet with pesto sauce, hatch chili mac and cheese, salad with goat cheese, capers and asparagus.
