That has changed through the years, and he now produces superb Bordeaux- and Rhône-style wines. This delicious Sauvignon Blanc opens with pretty aromas of floral notes, lime, pineapple, Golden Delicious apple and lemon. On the palate, it offers tasty flavors of white pineapple, lemon and hints of jicama. It will pair beautifully with scallops, oysters, halibut or chicken.
