Not your typical Sauvignon Blanc, this fragrant seducer delivers aromas of sweet peach, honey, narcissus, lemon drop, and white pepper. It enters the mouth with a wide embrace, then tapers to an elegant, soft grip on the finish. Because of its botanical undertone, this is an amiable companion to bright daylight. It adds the finishing touch to appetizers such as Greek salad, tempura, and shellfish. With mild- tasting cheeses like mozzarella and camembert, the wine gains a fuller body.
