Gamble’s 2022 sauvignon blanc

Light and crisp, this dry wine comes with tropical aromas of white peach, lychee and honeysuckle. Delightfully creamy, “the mid-palate brims with zesty citrus and minerality, balanced by flavors of pink grapefruit, mango, kumquat zest, and yuzu curd.” It is recommended that you enjoy this bright and lovely sauvignon blanc ($55) with lighter foods and exotic cuisine.

“We hope you enjoy this wine over several hours with good food and those you love,” says the winery’s proprietor, Tom Gamble.

Produced by Gamble Family Vineyards in Napa Valley, this summer wine is one not to miss. More than 1,000 cases were produced, so there’s no fear of running out anytime soon.
