Main Divide Sauvignon Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is a pale lemon-lime hue. A generous array of aromas and flavors suggest passionfruit, gooseberries and ripe cantaloupe that has been sprinkled with freshly crushed thyme. In the mouth it has a lively energy with a muscular tautness to its medium weight and a refreshing, tangy, dry lime zest finish.
The basis for the Main Divide’s philosophy is individuality and harmony. They wish to produce distinctive, vibrant wines with lively fruit flavors, which at the same time are integrated and harmonious.
