Taste profile from the winemaker: "... a vibrant, fruit-driven New World style wine
that features bold tropical citrus flavors accented by subtle mineral notes. The crisp acidity and bright tropical fruits evident in this wine pair well with a wide variety of foods, but especially Asian and Indian cuisines. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within one year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to two years."

ABC Wines review: This is a delicious sauvignon blanc, though the "subtle" mineral notes are a bit more pronounced here. The citrus flavor tends toward lime, but is not dominant, and gives the wine its crispness. At less than $10, it is a terrific everyday wine. Our score: Above Average.
