2017 Burnt Ship Bay Sauv blanc

Pale in color with nice citrus, minerally nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with citrus, and minerality coming through. This is a smoother, milder sauv blanc, but spot on varietal. Medium in length on the finish the citrus notes and acidity are notable. It’s nice and dry! This is definitely a milder sauv blanc up front, so be sure and pair it with something not too lively or you wont be tasting the wine. I paired it with a cajun catfish and honestly, it was slightly over powered. It could easily be sipped on the patio in the summer. The wine builds nicely in the mouth especially without food. I would give it an 88-. Not bad at all for the price. I emailed the winery and was told “the vines are from our (Burnt Ship Bay) own vineyard. They are now 5 years old. The vineyard is in the border of the Four Mile Creek and Lakeshore sub-appellations. Great spot for this varietal!”
