WINE OF THE MONTH


 

Leese-Fitch

Sauvignon Blanc

88% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% French Colombard • Appellation 100% California

This Sauvignon Blanc is thoroughly refreshing, with aromas of guava, papaya and pear. These enticing characteristics are followed by vibrant citrus notes of grapefruit and lime on the palate, which enhance the wine’s juicy body and highlight its crisp, balanced acidity.

A suitable pairing for this Sauvignon Blanc is a light vegetable salad, an assortment of aged cheeses, mild white fish or roast chicken with a simple, classic marinade. While not a pairing, per se, we love this wine made up into sangria because of it’s citrus quality.


Serve up Sangria
