Wine EnthusiastThis wine says that it's made from Sauvignon Blanc, however there's no clues as to where the ballerina pink color comes from (the skins of a little Pinot Noir, perhaps?). When it comes to flavor, however, there's no doubt this is Sauvignon. In fact, it smells and tastes more like a white one than a pink one. Slightly underripe notes of green leaves, bell pepper, guava and grapefruit seem to have a just a touch of sweetness but this would still be considered dry. Overall, it is a simple summer sipper.
