With the dogwood being the state flower of Virginia (where Erin was born and raised), and the thistle being the flower of Scotland (where much of Sandy’s family is from), the name represents our personal and professional backgrounds coming together to build a life, family, and business that we love.
The wine opens with tropical aromas of lychee, lemon blossom, lemongrass, and lime leaf on the nose, with nice crisp acidity, great zip, and grassy grapefruit flavors on the palate. It is medium-bodied for a Sauvignon Blanc, with a thought-provoking nuance, yet is easy-drinking at the same time. The mouth-feel is juicy and the finish is long and mouth-watering.
