Best Buy! Thanks to the Miller family and winemaker Travis Maple, one of the Pacific Northwest’s most prolific efforts of Sauvignon Blanc also ranks among the very best. And least expensive. It also might be the easiest to enjoy for those new to this white Bordeaux variety. White peach takes the lead over gooseberry as Key lime and Meyer lemon combine for an enticing citrusy profile. And it’s an example that doesn’t go “meow” when it comes to the aromas. It’s approachable, expressive without getting nerdy and deliciously balanced. Suggested pairings include summertime salads, gazpacho, calamari with garlic and peas, grilled vegetable pasta with cumin or cheese wedges of sharp cheddar or bûcheron.
