photoThis wine is sweet.  The aroma has loads of tropical fruits .  The fragrances of grapefruit, pineapple, kiwi and a hint of newly mowed grass are the first indication of just how sweet Monkey Bay is. This Sauvignon Blanc is very crisp, but I would not call it clean.  The wine has all of the flavors mentioned above adding some passion fruit and maybe a twist of a tropical flower.  If I were serving this wine, I would pair it with chicken of shell-fish such as shrimp or crab legs.

Compared to the Nobel Vines 242 I discussed last week, the Monkey Bay is about twice as sweet.  This is really too sweet for my taste, but I can see where folks would find it light and refreshing on a warm summers evening.
