Le_Jardin_My_BlogLe Jardin d’Eolie 2015 Sauvignon Blanc (Vin de France)

5 ounces poured into:  stemless aerator glass

Sight:  Pale straw, crystal clear

Aroma:  Lime and orange citrus, a hint of melon.  Secondary aromas include grass and ginger.

Taste:  Lime, subtle tartness and acidity.  Green notes of grass, sage and melon.  A slightly earthy brine that would lend this wine to be a great pairing with fresh, raw oysters.

Feel:  Light, crisp, a touch pointy.  Dry and refreshing

Overall:  Easy-drinking, perfect for hot weather.  Flavorful and delicate.

Suggested food pairing:  Ceviche, salad, white flaky fish, sharp cheddar, goat cheese, and of course, oysters.
