SAUVIGNON BLANC/SEMILLON BLEND 2017 by CAPE MENTELLE in New Zealand $17.99 BTL
COMMENTARY: Nothing cleanses the palate better than a Sauvignon Blanc, and when the winery combines this grape variety with Semillon, the results can be quite outstanding. The 2017 Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is at the top of its game. TASTING NOTES: This wine is balanced, refined, and generous. Its aromas and flavors of ripe citrus, savory spice, and ripe wintermelon should pair it divinely with a crisp Dungeness crab salad with a lemon citrus dressing.
