My Notes:

Appearance: clear, star bright, light straw color, low concentration, medium viscosity

Nose: clean, medium intensity, aroma/youthful, asparagus, light tangerine, green grass, white flowers, melon, honey, golden apple, faint mushroom, slate, wet stone

Palate: dry, light/medium bodied, floral, melon, golden apple, slate, mushroom, medium plus alcohol, medium acidity, medium finish, medium complexity

Citrus flavors were more prevalent after the wine had breathed.

One of my closest friends and I have established a yearly tradition.  Whenever she has her annual garage sale in her town, I come over and we catch up and drink wine.  This year, I brought a bottle of this Sauvignon Blanc and it was a hit. I will definitely purchase this wine again.
