Fruity aromas and flavors of grapefruit cordial, green apple, sweet plantain, passionfruit, and green papaya with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, stimulating, medium-length finish with touches of snap pea with no oak flavor. A dry, juicy Sauvignon Blanc that will be very versatile.

Food pairing notes
Our wine experts think this Californian Sauvignon Blanc wine would be a match made in heaven with these dishes. Bon appétit!
California is known primarily for its Cabernet and Chardonnay, but they are also producing some really lovely Sauvignon Blancs. These wines are typically high in acidity and great with food.
Sauvignon Blanc in California is usually a little fruitier than it is in France, and a little lighter in body and color than a typical Chardonnay.
Sauvignon Blanc might be the perfect wine for summertime and California makes some of the best. The wines are usually light, crisp, and brimming with gorgeous flavors of zesty lime, grapefruit, and melon. These fruit flavors are perfectly complemented with subtle herbal flavors. Some say that Sauvignon Blanc smells like freshly mown grass.
One of the best parts about Sauvignon Blanc is that it is relatively inexpensive. A lack of new oak and smaller demand, keeps its prices lower than Chardonnay. You can get great deals on these. Look for great Sauvignon Blancs from classic Napa Valley producers.
