Sauvignon Blanc

Cape Point Vineyards, Cape Point, South Africa, 2011

Alluring, with lightly toasted brioche and wet straw notes framing a core of muddled lemon, white peach and chamomile. The long, mineral- and gooseberry-filled finish echoes nicely.  $42

Duckhorn, Napa Valley, California, 2013

Stylish.  Refreshing notes of lemon, grapefruit and lime as well as tropical hints of pineapple, mango and passion fruit.  Has a nice intensity.   $50

Greywacke, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2013

The characteristic herbal, grassy elements of Marlborough are present, but toned-down, making this wine an easier fit with a variety of foodstuffs. A pleasant plumpness to the mouthfeel turns dry and chalky on the long finish.  $40

Matua, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2014

Dry with a tangy core of lime, ruby grapefruit and pineapple. Juicy and refreshing on the finish. $36

Round Pond Estate, Napa Valley, California, 2012

The peach and apricot flavors have a crisp, lemony edge, with plenty of refreshing acidity and details of fresh herbs on the finish. $38
