+ GRAPES: 90% Sauvignon Blanc + 10% Chenin Blanc from the Columbia Valley, Washington AVA
+ FUNDAMENTALS: Traditional farming. All stainless steel - no oak here! - and zero malolactic fermentation. Early harvest keeps things fresh.
+ PROFILE: Light off-dry, this is a more aromatic Sauvignon with loads of texture and tons of personality. White flowers, kaffir lime leaf and thyme, followed by melon and citrus notes. Medium plus body.
+ DRINK ME: As an aperitif, all on its own, or with savory snacks. Stands up nicely to lightly spicy fare, too.
+ FUN FACT: Pavette is a 'little peacock' - hence the label.
