The 1997 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from 46-year-old vines from Whitehall Lane’s fabulous Bommarito vineyard in the Napa Valley. Crisp and refreshing, this wine delivers pleasing aromas of grapefruit, honeydew melon and notes of toasted vanilla and spice. Medium-full on the palate and brisk but never acidic, it is clean and focused, with flavors of lemon, lime and melon that linger nicely in the mouth.

The Insider’s Wine Line publication rates the wine an impressive 87 points, saying it has a “fruity bouquet of melon, grapefruit, fig, mango, and vanilla. On the palate, the flavors of melon, spice, pineapple, and vanilla are rich and flavorful, followed by a medium long, fruity, moderately creamy finish.”

Bound to be a great partner with all sorts of tangy shellfish and a wide variety of broiled fish entrees.
