On the nose, this wine is floral with a ton of tropical fruit notes. On the palate, there is pink grapefruit, Meyer lemons, a drizzle of honey and Asian pear.
The wine’s six month fermentation in seasoned French oak barrels created a Sauvignon Blanc with real backbone and depth. This isn’t a pale, watery Sauvignon Blanc made to be sipped as an aperitif on a hot summer day. It’s a rich, well-balanced, bright wine that is wonderful paired with fish or seafood but can also hold its own with spicy dishes.
Super wine for fans of Gewürztraminer and dry Riesling. A bit of a splurge for some Sauvignon Blanc drinkers, but certainly worth every penny.
