Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of lemon, wet stone, and fresh marjoram with a supple, crisp, dry thin body and a seamless, quick finish with nuances of yellow apple, green apple, fresh asparagus, and jalapeño with no oak flavor.

Light yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit pith, lemon zest, and green apple with a supple, crisp, petillant, dry thin body and a tingling, engaging, fast finish conveying notes of white grapefruit, citronella, wheat grass, and green apple with no oak flavor.

Light straw color. Aromas and flavors of mineral, lemon juice, green grass, asparagus, and white strawberry with a supple, lively, dry light body and a smooth, interesting, brisk finish with elements of white cherry, lime, arugula, and rice vinaigrette with no oak flavor. A lean Sauvignon Blanc, with citrus and white berry notes; a solid everyday white.
