A Stellar Sauvignon Blanc: sunshine in a bottle
Hats off to Chateau Ste. Michelle for this lovely Sauvignon Blanc from Washington's Columbia River Valley. Refreshing and vibrant with a clean citrus finish, this white wine is an excellent pair for cream sauces, fish, chicken, and salads. My cook's mind considered lemon, cucumber, and herbs as I breathed in its light, summery bouquet. Galileo said, "Wine is sunlight, held together by water." In the case of this wine, I couldn't agree more.
