Tasting Notes

If you like Sauvignon Blanc then this wine will certainly appeal to you. A blended white from the winemaking region near Gascony that produces primarily white wines. It’s aromatic, herbal and luscious with white pineapple and grassy notes. A perfect pair with a light salad.


Staff Pick Notes
