2014 Steven Kent Winery Lola Ghielmetti Vineyard Livermore Valley
Introduced a few years back to Steven Kent Wines by one of my favorite wine friends Tracey Hoff, I have a great appreciation for Steven's portfolio. Easy drinking, food friendly and sophisticated. Blending is an art and Steven nailed it on this wine. 75% Sauv Blanc and 25% Semillon, single vineyard juice with less than 420 cases produced all for under $25. A steal my wine friends.
The nose is vibrant with lime and lemon zest, honeydew melon freshly sliced and a hint of peach. Fresh cut flowers round out the aromas and compliment the fruit perfectly.
The mouth is crisp and clean with loads of lemon lime citrus. Melon with hints of pineapple gives the wine a tropical feel and the fruit lingers long into the finish. A perfect pairing for my Maryland Crab Cakes with Rice Pilaf drizzled with fresh lemon juice and parsley. Love this wine.
Stop by Livermore Wine Country and visit The Steven Kent Winery to treat your palate. Love this wine region and especially Steven's wines
