On the nose, aromas of white peach and ripe honeydew melon, are intertwined with notes of delicate orange blossom and lightly caramelized crème brûlée. Subtle hints of mint leaf and wet stone can also be found lingering in the background. On the palate, racy flavors of green apple, grapefruit and lime zest awaken the taste buds. As the wine opens up, subtle flavors of lemongrass and honeycomb combine with brioche, as the sur lie ageing becomes evident. In its youth, the bright acid and exotic nose shine through, but with time more complex flavors and aromas will develop making for a truly memorable wine.
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is bright, punchy and full of character. Lees aging and the use of larger-format oak yield a wine of real complexity and personality. White flowers, orchard fruit and mint give the wine lovely aromatic brightness. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2018 has a ton of structure, not to mention terrific overall balance.
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is made up of 52% Sauvignon Blanc, 45% Sauvignon Musqué and 3% Sémillion. It features beautifully intense notes of lemon curd, yuzu and pink grapefruit with touches of wild thyme, lime blossoms and chalk dust. Medium-bodied, elegant and refreshing, the palate possesses plenty of vivacity and a good, long mineral-laced finish.
