2008 Grochau Cellars Sauvignon Blanc
Vinified in stainless steel (80%) and neutral oak (20%). Clear, bright, medium-light gold color. Clean nose with medium intensity aromatics of dry grass, ripe tropical fruit, stone, and white flowers. Dry on the palate with medium-high acidity, medium-full body, and flavors of grapefruit, lime zest, tart stone fruit, and herbs. Long finish. Clean, well balanced, has beautiful acidity, and would pair well with chèvre or white asparagus. Highly recommended.
