The 2017 AVETA Sauvignon Blanc offers expressive aromas of tangerine, lemongrass, nectarine and a hint of grass. On the palate, the wine is fresh and lively with citrus flavors and a touch of orange blossom. The wine has a lingering finish with bright acidity. The weight, flavorful texture and acidity make this a versatile food wine. Try pairing AVETA with fresh fish ceviche, crab cakes or grilled oysters with mignonette sauce.

This has 10% Sauvignon Musqué, 3% Sémillon and 1% Muscat Canelli. Together, the grapes provide an experience of floral melon, stone fruit and white flower, a pungent nuttiness contributing additional complexity. The midpalate is steely and high toned in citrus.

Blended of 86% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sauvignon Musque (a clonal variant of Sauvignon Blanc), 3% Sémillon and 1% Muscat Canelli, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Aveta rocks up with vibrant lemon zest, yuzu and green mango scents plus a touch of wild sage. Medium-bodied with plenty of zippy freshness, it finishes on an herbal note.
