Presenting a wonderful, terroir-driven, stylistic expression of Sauvignon Blanc, this zesty wine was vinified in separate batches and left on the lees for added character development. In the glass, it entices with an alluring minerality and mild herbaceousness, layered with lemon zest, a hint of green pepper and grassy notes. On the palate, fig, lime and tropical fruit flavors yield to a bracing acidity and lively finish. It's good as an aperitif or with raw oysters, chicken salad or any seafood dish. Buy it at: Whole Foods Markets, Cork & Bottle, Schiro's Cafe, Matassa's Market, The Boot Store, and Breaux Mart in Metairie. Drink it at: Clementine's Belgian Bistrot and Tennou Sushi Bar.
