Crisp, fruity flavors of lime, kiwi, mango and citrus make this wine the perfect wingman for spicy shrimp or grilled seafood. One sip conjures memories of fresh-squeezed lemonade on a hot summer day. Vibrant citrus flavors and a touch of that traditional Sauvignon Blanc grassiness give this wine a crisp, inviting acidity. Stick to pork, chicken or fish with this wine, but throw in some basil or cilantro to match its unique flavors and texture.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2005 Vintage) 5% Semillon. Moderately fruity and nicely defined as Sauvignon Blanc with its themes of fresh melons overlaid by green-grass herbaceousness, this plump, pleasantly rounded effort is both balanced and nicely focused from beginning to end. It may not be among the deeper or more complex wines of its class, but it is tasty, easy-to-like and a flat out bargain for the money. GOOD VALUE
