Hot days are made for cooler wines and Sauvignon Blanc almost always fits the bill. But when you have a Sauvignon Blanc like this one that is so pure, straightforward and extremely easy to enjoy, you know you have hit the jackpot. Don't mistake this as simple, because it isn't. It is just very well made and exactly how we enjoy SB. Shepherd Wines, aka Truchard Vineyards, presents a fine California example of this wildly popular grape. Aromas of cooked pear, grapefruit and crisp linen resonate throughout the glass and intensify as the wine begins to warm. Delicious and crisp citrus flavors lead to a zippy and memorable medium acidic finish. Absolutely and easily a daily drinker!
