This lovely, bright and cheery Sauvignon Blanc proffers tantalizing aromas of grapefruit, pineapple and gooseberry, with hints of quince. Floral notes of lemongrass and acacia are balanced with lychee and wet stone. Classily structured and elegantly styled, a veritable explosion of crisp and juicy fruit flavors burst upon the palate. Lemon chiffon, key lime pie and kiwi are accented with green apple, white nectarine and pineapple. Decisively refreshing, this wine finishes lean and clean with long lingering notes of dragon fruit, citrus and passion fruit.

Pale, green-hued yellow. A highly complex, smoke-tinged bouquet evokes ripe Meyer lemon, pear and nectarine, along with suggestions of buttered toast, fennel, vanilla and pungent flowers. Stains the palate with sappy orchard and citrus fruit, buttery pastry, vanilla and succulent herb flavors that firm up steadily on the back half. Finishes very long, smooth and precise, with resonating floral and smoke notes and a late jolt of dusty minerals. (aged in new French oak barrels for seven months)

Starting with the only white I was able to taste, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Estate showed brilliantly, with a Bordeaux Blanc-like bouquet of lemon oil, crushed citrus, white flowers, and background oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, this is a stunning Sauvignon Blanc.

The first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc from this producer is a complex and lively white wine to balance their rich red portfolio. Aromas of jalapeño, green herbs and wet cement meet with nectarine on the nose, while the zesty palate combines bell pepper, lime peel, peach and tropical fruit.
