“Winemaker Alana McGettigan is an associate of Matt Thomson (Saint Clair, Delta), so it’s no surprise this Sauvignon Blanc overdelivers. Hints of tomato leaf garnish passion fruit and citrus flavors in this wine, which reveals a certain amount of austerity and restraint on the palate, a silky texture and a long, grapefruit-driven finish.”
