“Light and refreshing, with grapefruit and floral flavors singing brightly and lingering well. Drink now.” - HS
Smooth and juicy with notes of citrus and melon; ripe, grassy and crisp, long and tangy.
Food & Wine included the Waterbrook 2013 Sauvignon Blanc as part of its "50 amazing wines for $15 or less" feature section. Classified in the "fruity whites" section, these wines are "zesty, unoaked, medium-bodied; pair with fish and vegetable dishes."
"The 2013 vintage in the Columbia Valley was the warmest in a decade – 2014 is also shaping up to be toasty – with cooling off just before harvest. Waterbrook’s winemaker John Freeman crafted this classic Washington Sauvignon Blanc showing grassy herb and gooseberry aromas and flavors mingling with citrus and flinty mineral notes. This style is a personal favorite that Waterbrook has been making for more than two decades." -Chuck Hill
"Light and refreshing, this fresh style offers grapefruit and herb flavors."
"This juicy, fresh, fruit-laden wine captures the ideal mix of snappy citrus and luscious stone-fruit. Delicious." - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, July 2011
Lemongrass and fresh pineapple aromas lead to clean and refreshing flavors of wet stone, gooseberry and lime zest. Balanced alcohol promotes bright acid on the zingy, fruity finish.
