2017 Betelgeuse Sauvignon Blanc

  • Tasting Notes

    This flaxen straw colored wine offers up delicate notes of green guava, melon, honeysuckle, and garden nectar blended with chrysanthemum, nectarine, and dune grass. Time in the glass reveals secondary notes of summer meadow, peach, and subtle sea spray. Mouthfeel is lean, spare, and elegant with light body and gentle acidity.

    Betelgeuse is an icebreaker, a spirit lifter, and an elegant addition to your dining table, picnic basket, or poolside party. It is especially brilliant during the summer months but shines brightly year-round. This is the perfect starter wine in both senses of that term — whether for newcomers to the world of wine or seasoned enthusiasts looking for a well-made yet affordable aperitif to kick off any meal or gathering with panache.
