    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pale straw in color with intense amalgam of limes, grapefruit, and underlying rich tropical fruit aromas. It has an inviting and fine texture that brings out the citrus and currant flavors of the wine. Pure fruit and vibrant acidity leave a sustained, dry finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Infused with ripe peach, pear and guava flavors, this is smooth and refreshing, ripe and juicy. Spicy finish.

    Spy Valley’s 2011 Sauvignon Blanc is intensely scented of freshly chopped herbs, lime zest and kumquat with hints of lemon tart and gooseberry. Medium bodied, it offers a very good concentration of citrus and herbal flavors with great balance and a long refreshing finish. Drinking now, it should keep to 2014.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright pale yellow. Aromas of stone fruits, lime, orange and honey complicated by an exotic suggestion of tropical fruits. Fat, sexy and sweet, in a crowd-pleasing style. Offers immediate appeal to its easygoing stone and tropical fruit flavors. A bit too easy for my taste, but finishes with good length.

    Great wine. Wonderful bold hints of grapefruit and pear. Have purchased many times and never disappointed.

    See my CellarTracker or Twitter review about this. Worth the buy, however!
