Wine Review - Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc

The 2017 Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc (13% alc.) is pale yellow in the glass. There are strong aromas of kiwi and melon on the nose. There are tastes of lemon and grapefruit citrus, grass and minerals. The finish is long, acidic and dry. This is a refreshing wine perfect for warm weather sipping.
