2013 Tulip “White Tulip”

This is a lovely wine for the pool-side, fresh, bright, and refreshing. The color is a pale straw, and the nose shows pineapple, backed by pink grapefruit. The Sauvignon Blanc takes the lead on the palate, with grass and grapefruit. Pineapple, tart and sweet, come through on the mid-palate, followed by grapefruit, a blend of white and Ruby Red. Drink with a turkey sandwich and chips on the pool deck. Recommended. 87 points.
