The relatively cooler temps of the 2017 vintage are obvious on this Sauvignon Blanc, where aromas of green beans and jalapeño peppers mix with guava and grapefruit rind, followed closely by a solid whiff of salty sea air. The palate is equally saline, with a lovely satiny texture and lemony acidity. A wine for oysters if there ever was one.
