Martin Ray Sauvignon Blanc 2016

The color is pale, almost perfectly clear. The nose is beautifully perfumed, with orange blossoms, honeysuckle, cut grass and pink grapefruit wafting up from the glass. On the palate, citrus takes the lead, as clean, tart lemon dances with pink grapefruit, the sweeter tropical fruits appearing as just teasing hints on the mid-palate. This is a lovely glass of wine. Drink with swordfish and let the lightness contrast with the meaty fish. Highly Recommended. 92 points. DBH
