(a blend based on 62% sauvignon blanc): Bright pale yellow. Enticing aromas of pineapple, passion fruit and white flowers. Juicy and bright on the palate, with sauvignon-dominated flavors of lemon and grapefuit. A touch of steeliness and a saline element add nuance and grip to this nicely balanced blend, which also includes chardonnay, semillon, viognier, grenache blanc and roussanne. At once supple and lively on the back end, throwing off notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits and dusty herbs.
