Taste/Description: Purchased from @marthawineco, this wine is hails from France. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a Sauvignon Blanc from France and this did not disappoint. On the nose, you get tangy citrus and white peach. On the palate you get crisp refreshing acidity with flavor notes of green, citrus and grass. Don’t read this and assume it’s your front lawn in a glass, it’s not. Grass notes are a common flavor note in Sauvignon Blancs.
