Tasting notes

Aromas of stargazer lilies, lemon oil, honeysuckle and dusty stone. Zesty and crisp with flavors of cut grass and minerals leading to passion fruit, kiwi, lime zest, and tarragon. Cooler sites at Oasis, Olsen and Gamache Vineyards give us the natural acidity that makes Pearl a fresh and delicious gustatory experience. 

Food pairing: anything from the ocean, but oysters for sure. Shigokus and kushis are the best.
Movie pairing: The  Wizard of Oz

FOUNDERS’ NOTES
Pearl was Kelly's first solo wine project, spawned in 2009 from her love of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. Pearl was named in honor of Kelly's great grandmother who drove around in a pearl Cadillac convertible and drank Tennessee whiskey. The style is at once mineral and fruit driven, as if Sancerre and New Zealand made a Sauvignon Blanc baby. The 2011 scored a 92 from Wine Enthusiast.
