Epilog (Coop Jesus Del Perdon Manzanares España) 2012 Sauvginon Blanc

Epilog (Coop Jesus Del Perdon Manzanares España) 2012 Sauvginon Blanc, $10.99-$12.99, 88 points, was a rather dull lemon/lime color.
Aromatic citrus with a sweet floral note were excellent.
Light to light-plus bodied with fair acidity and a rather smooth texture for a Sauvignon Blanc, made for a good quaffing white wine.
Flavors of Macintosh apple, honey, and watermelon were okay, but a bit thin.
Finished okay on watermelon rind, citrus, and a well integrated 12.5% alcohol.
Varietals were 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Moscatel.
I think this wine has a definite place with some table settings that demand a Sauvignon Blanc white wine which will pair well with a more delicate white fish and not overwhelm or dominate the cuisine, or for those that find Cali SB too rough with all that acid and peppery notes (JMO).
