Grape variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Producer: Merry Edwards

Alcohol content: 14.1%

Origin: Russian River Valley, California, USA

Notes: This vibrant wine greets us with the delicate fragrance of jasmine, honeysuckle and cherry blossoms, along with blood orange and lime zest. Ripe white peach, nectarine, Pink Lady apple and Asian pear add intriguing dimensions. Toasted brioche, hazelnut and hibiscus tea further expand its elegant nature. The palate is a heightened reflection of aroma, bursting with more citrus and stone fruits and showing a bit of the wet-stone minerality that will develop with time. The long, layered finish follows through with just a hint of sweet pink grapefruit.

 

Critical acclaim

 93 points

"Succulent, lush and rich, with fleshy mango, melon and peach flavors up front, leading to a core of pineapple, lemon and honeysuckle notes. The smoky edge and nervy acidity weave in and out, giving this a fresh finish."

Food Pairing: Asian style chicken salad, Baby spinach salad, Honey-lime baked wild Salmon
