The citrus and crisp flavor notes of the wines made me crave something equally light and crisp. I thought that a fresh salad would go perfectly with both the Giesen 0% Sauvignon Blanc and the Estate Sauvignon Blanc. I had my sisters taste test some salad ideas with the wines with me - we all agreed that this combo was our favorite.
