Matanzas Creek Winery Sonoma County 2011 Sauvignon Blanc, $13.00-$19.99, 91 points, appears as a light burnished gold color.
The aroma wraps grapefruit and mineral notes reminiscent of Perrier (French mineral water) around green melon with a hint of honeysuckle.
Light and crisp with good acidity, flavors of white grapefruit is mellow, while honeydew melon, and lemon notes make for an excellent blend.
A trailing palate with a trace of tangerine and ginger is good.
I paired this with:
Greek spinach and feta pita: excellent!
Chef salad: only fair!
