Great example of Sauvignon Blanc - light on its feet, mineral packed, exhibiting a bouquet of lemongrass, white pears, underripe grapefruit, white pepper, jasmine, and a zip of acidity to brighten it up.

First dinner with Duszaks and brought as sister wine. ASB but distinctly different profile although still varietal similarity that's more fruit and acids with a lift on finish. A lighter wine on its feet than Reverdy and also a terrific wine. Also did not pair perfectly but did reasonably well.

Love the bouquet on this wine and the minerality on the tongue. Light body, balance of acidity and sweetness. I did guess that it was higher in alcohol than it actually was!

Beautiful crisp and fresh. Fabulously paired with a smoked salmon.
