The 2002 de Lorimier Sauvignon Blanc is a bright, citrus-spiced wine that is a straightforward example of how Sauvignon Blanc should be made.It can be a tough varietal to produce as evidenced by lots of green,overly grassy and acidic versions out there. However, this Sauvignon Blanc is one of fruity complexity and balance. In the first competition of the year it garnered a Silver Medal showing that critics agree. As the season progresses we can expect many more medals from this little gem.Tasting notes show nice aromas of melons, figs and citrus. Its open, round feel on the palate allows plenty of grapefruity, figgy and lemon cream flavors to burst through with hints of fresh grass. A very bright, fruity, clean and crisp impression remains in the mouth.Try it with grilled snapper, sea bass or even your favorite sushi
