Pale lemon with aromas of citrus and tropical fruit with herb, citrus and grassy notes. On the palate flavors of apple, mango citrus and some grassy tones with lively acidity. Medium finish ending with earthy herbal, grassy and mineral notes.

This wine has huge notes of grapefruit and freshly mown grass on the nose. The palate shows ripe grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, nectarine and a healthy acidity. Shellfish, here we come. Oysters, probably.

Bought from Costco. Pretty lemony to me. Wife says it tastes like peach or some other stone fruit.

Enjoyed 2022 vintage on June 6, 2023. Taste the grapefruit but not the cat’s pee!🤣

Very tasty, citrusy, and fruity. With dry finish. Guava aromas and a little passion fruit. 11.49 at Costco. Would get again.

Very tropical! Guava, on the sweeter side. Best with mahi mahi and pineapple.

I am normally a little nervous about getting'gold medal' wines, but this is really nice. More flavorful than most Sauv Blancs
