$18 Retail

Biodynamic vineyard practices are used for Domaine de la Garreliere wines, and hand-harvesting is delayed far into the fall to obtain optimal ripeness. The 100 percent sauvignon blanc wine rests on its lees to develop the characteristic expression of the varietal. In the glass, it offers aromas of lime zest and herbs with floral and tropical fruit notes. On the palate, taste textured, nuanced flavors of citrus, ginger, a hint of spice and stony minerality. Drink it with poached salmon with dill and capers, oysters Rockefeller, shrimp bisque, mussels in broth, Thai noodle dishes, white-fleshed fish with beurre blanc, salads, sauteed Brussels sprouts and artichokes with vinaigrette. Buy it at: Faubourg Wines.
