Justin Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast|
Clear, bright, pale straw with silver highlights. Aromatic with ripe lemon, pear and a tropical fruit, mixed with savory herbal notes and acacia flower accents. Dry with moderate-plus body, a fresh burst of lemon lime and green apple on the entry becoming more complex toward the mid-palate with white pepper, green herbs and floral notes as the palate unfolds. The finish is crisp with sustained citrus and tropical fruit balanced by savory fresh cut herbs, a subtle white pepper accent and a pleasing mineral texture. It's a perfect match to a cool summer soup like Gazpacho, or its Andalusian relative, Salmorejo made with fresh olive oil. It's also great with grilled oysters with an herb compound butter, or a salad of mixed greens, pears and walnuts with fresh goat cheese. This is Sauvignon Blanc at its best; palate-cleansing and refreshing, textural, with a balance of complex fruit, herbal highlights and savory flavors.
