White Wine by Bell Wine Cellars from California. The 2015 sauvignon blanc is a crisp and refreshing wine with a very pale color and an elegant green tint. Classic sauvignon blanc citrus aromas such as grapefruit, lemongrass, green apple and kiwi fill the glass and eloquently suggests this will be a light, refreshing and enjoyable wine. Crisp and lean on the palate we find layers of citrus peel, melon, pineapple and a hint of lemon basil. The acidity is energizing but doesn't overpower and makes a perfect accompaniment to shellfish, poultry, fresh fish or just in a glass by itself!
White Wine by Wines of Substance from Columbia Valley, Washington. 2013 was the warmest vintage since 2003, and cooled off just in time for harvest. The resulting wines were less likely to tip over into overripe flavors or high alcohol levels, and picking proceeded at a normal pace. The very warm vintage cooled down in mid-September allowing us to pick at the perfect moment in the first week of October. This gave us generous, full-flavored wine, while still Keeping focus.
