This food-friendly wine imparts bright, fresh honeydew melon, grapefruit, and passion fruit aroma. Its rich, round flavors suggest melon, lime, and grapefruit finished with spice and minerals. An extremely versatile wine, it pairs beautifully with shellfish, broiled or pan-fried trout, snapper, sole, herb-roasted chicken, Caesar salad, mild cheeses, and vegetarian fare.
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
