Pure, crisp, steely Sauvignon Blanc, wonderful food wine, excellent bargain. Medium bodied with mineral-laden, lemony flavors and an intriguing hint of seaweed. Just about the perfect shellfish wine. Don't serve this one too cold: like so many excellent but delicate wines, cold temperatures suppress the wine's fruit and texture. . - HK 2000-09-12
