This is a dry, pure, unoaked Sauvignon Blanc from the Central Coast of California. Look for fresh, clean aromas of lemons, passion fruit and apricot skin with more of the same in the mouth. This is not 'green' nor herbal and tasted extra juicy with goat's milk cheese and sliced honey crisp apple. Ideal for serving with seafood, salads, lemony dishes, and goat cheeses with fresh fruits. Tortoise Creek owners Mel and Janie Master are long time Sauvignon Blanc aficionado's, and serve this wine at home frequently. Mel and Janie simply have two of the best palates in the wine business for both wine and food. Plus, they have dedicated the last 20+ years to providing us with reasonably priced, honest and delicious wines from California and the South of France with their Tortoise Creek wines as well as from Italy with Tiamo.

Wine EnthusiastThis bottling's slightly dank nose recalls the front lawn being cut on a hot summer day, but a warmer, more inviting peach and nectarine fruit component awaits in the background. The palate is tangy with sharp lime peels and a bit tarry.

Wine SpectatorThere's a hint of toast to the melon, peach and citrus flavors. Softly juicy and spicy on the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.
