Warm tropical yellow tree fruits. Pineapple, yellow guava with citrus and grapefruit rind. A big, rich tropical style with fruit musk and spicy citrus notes. The palate is dense but more restrained than the nose. Polished with enough sweet fruit to serve chilled.
Artichoke dip, grilled asparagus, fresh tomatoes, spicy tapas, raw oysters, black cod. The Sauvignon Blanc is summer in a glass, and it loves summer foods. It’s ideal before dinner with some artichoke dip, creamy cheese or grilled asparagus. It’s a great friend of fresh tomatoes, but substantial enough to pair with chicken or spicy tapas. It brings out the very best in raw oysters, and it’s the perfect sip between bites of scallop or black cod, but it’s equally at home around a communal bowl of steamed clams. Whether you want to really focus on your meal, or just have a tasty glass of something while watching the sun go down, this is a reliably rewarding summer wine to reach for.
