Clos du Val’s Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp style redolent of kiwi, grass, and honeydew. It’s fully dry with substantial structure, and the flavors deliver an impression of musky lime peel. The finish is long, expansive, and spiked with yuzu citrus. It’s a good wine for young goat cheeses, crudité with aïoli, or cold asparagus. The structure and mid-palate heft allow it to pair well with seared chicken, halibut, or other light poultry and fish. Try it with vegetable-centric cuisine seasoned with turmeric, mango, ginger, or lime.
