Enjoy the Wine Pick of the Week, the McKenna 2014 California Sauvignon Blanc

This McKenna 2014 California Sauvignon Blanc stays true to the varietal, with a light white flower and citrus flavor combination. In the nose, are some notes of lychee, passion fruit, lime and grapefruit. The attack in the mouth has a light, toasted oak character. The mid-palate provides a delicate refreshingly cool acidity.

This Sauvignon Blanc is perfect to be enjoyed now and throughout the summer. Our McKenna 2014 Sauvignon Blanc should be enjoyed over the next 3 years.

Enjoy it with seafood, white grilled meat, vegetarian dishes, pasta dishes and semi-soft cheeses such as Swiss, Havarti or Monterey Jack. Or enjoy it with the featured recipe, Caraway-Dill Salmon with Roasted Potatoes, a perfect pairing.
