Pack your bags…we're going to Hawaii!!! Seriously…our 2019 Vivant Sauvignon Blanc is "alive" with pineapple. WHAT???
This fruit-forward, high-acid wine greets you with a beautiful nose of ripe, sweet pineapple - yet it is a completely dry wine! The longer it sits in my glass the more the pineapple comes out - it's crazy! As Vivant transitions to your palate, here come the tree fruit and herbal qualities so common in Sauvignon Blanc: green apple, lemongrass, white peach, kiwi - and that pineapple nose lingers into the palate.
Serve Vivant with grilled salmon or food with light cream sauces (asparagus with Hollandaise). The acidity will also pair beautifully with cheeses like triple cream Brie or a fondue dinner. And I'm going out on a limb here - try serving Vivant with a beautiful summer ham. The wine's high acidity, bold fruit, and sweet nose should pair beautifully with the sweet-and-salty richness of the "other" white meat. Can you say Luau???
