Tasting Note: Laurentide Sauvignon Blanc

Laurentide is one of the wineries I visited on my most recent trip to the Traverse City area.  It’s a relatively new winery, founded by native Ann Arborites.

Laurentide Sauvignon Blanc (2015) Leelanau Peninsula, Michigan – $22

Color: pale yellow.

Aroma: tangerine & lime, plus hints of minerality and asian pear.

Taste: this is a mellow, lower-acidity Sauvignon, with lots of tangerine and pear, especially on the midpalate. The finish is a little rough; I wouldn’t drink this too warm. Suitable for cocktail hour or food.
