Wine Review: 2013 Galerie Equitem Sauvignon Blanc, Knights Valley, Sonoma County, California and the 2013 Galerie Naissance Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, California
Galerie is a collection of wines, crafted through the artistic and scientific sentiments of Winemaker Díaz Muñoz. Her collection consists of four wines—two Sauvignon blancs and two Cabernet Sauvignons that express two regions—Napa and Knights Valley.
Her Sauvignon blanc from Knights Valley, the 2013 Galerie Equitem Sauvignon blanc is lively, juicy and vivid with a lemon-lime backbone, sweetened with ripe pear and finishing with mineral notes.
Rating: Very Good | $30 | 14.5% ABV
The Galerie Naissance Sauvignon blanc is steely, forward and austere in style with sour lime leading to a clean, green apple finish. This is a perfect food wine to pair with prawns, lobster or any delicate white fish with a citrusy sauce. Japanese cuisine would equally work well.
