    Winemaker's Notes:

    This complex and focused Sauvignon Blanc seamlessly combines mouth-filling fruit with refreshing acidity. The aromas highlight elements of bright citrus and passion fruit, underscored by pineapple and layers of gala apple and lychee. The tropical aromas are echoed on the palate and given added dimension by the addition of Semillon, which helps to showcase the juicy guava, passion fruit and pineapple upside-down cake flavors, alongside notes of fresh apple, vanilla and key lime pie.

    75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Sémillon

    Critical Acclaim:

    Duckhorn Sauvignons have never show much of a bent to the grape's grassier side, and here again the wine goes right to a mix of melons and pears as its main motif. Ripe and rounded and less briskly balanced than its more acidy brethren, it will wash down varied chicken dishes with ease as it will any number of meaty fish preparations.

    Connoisseurs' Guide

    A lovely wine, offering fleshy, ripe melon, nectarine and apricot flavors that are focused and juicy, with hints of grapefruit and lemon on the crisp finish. Drink now.
