Merry Edwards always approached life with graceful intensity, and after five decades of winemaking, Merry has passed the reigns to the next generation, and to another woman winemaker. The style of her Sauvignon Blanc continues with an extra layer of freshness and energy. A key component of this wine is the highly floral Sauvignon Musqué selection from Sancerre. The Shenandoah clone balances this out nicely with its classic herbal, somewhat grassy character. The bright, shimmering, green-gold hue of this Sauvignon Blanc is a visual overture to a striking personality. Its enticing aroma is highly perfumed with honeysuckle, citrus blossom, white rose and gardenia. Honeydew melon, nectarine, ripe Rainier cherry, tangerine, Kaffir lime and summer hay add complexity, along with hints of sweet oak and toasted hazelnut. On the palate, vibrant acidity is finely balanced with a rich, creamy mouthfeel creating a unique textural experience — reminiscent of a refreshing blood orange sorbet. The finish is broad and lingers with sweet pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon zest. 

Merry's good friend Ann Marie Montecuo was inspired by an original Sam Sifton recipe to devise a delicious Roast Chicken Provençal. The sweet Meyer lemons and the herbs make it a perfect pairing with this Sauvignon Blanc. Serve with brown rice, crusty French bread and a green salad. Enjoy!!!

An aromatic nose of stone fruit, fresh tropical fruit and jasmine. Full-bodied with a nice, oily texture. Fruity and lightly honeyed on the palate. Lavender and lily. Steely. Loire-like. Always an excellent sauvignon blanc.
