    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose of this vintage is strikingly similar to the wines of the Loire, with a notable, yet mild, grassiness reminiscent of "fresh hay." A small percentage of the Musque clone adds lifted floral notes with subtle citrus and tropical fruit tones. On the palate, dried fig and a lovely lemon zest quality emerge, and the assertive acidity is nicely balanced by a textured mid-palate.

    The bracing acidity of this wine makes it a good match for slightly richer foods.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Wonderfully juicy and intense, with ripe pear, yellow apple, melon and citrus flavors that are balanced and elegant, but terrifically focused and very refreshing.

    Greenish gold. Highly fragrant aromas of green apple, pear, honey and dried flowers. Sappy, penetrating citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good clarity and pick up spiciness with aeration. Dusty and brisk on the nicely persistent finish, with the citrus and floral notes repeating.

    Richness is all in this powerful sauvignon, a big blast of lime and alcohol. Acidity comes up in the end, pushed back by all the fruit. For spicy Thai chicken sausages off the grill.

    Wine & Spirits

    A rich, layered white wine that shows its Sauvignon origins in the green herb and grass notes that ground richer orange and fig flavors. With crisp acidity, it’s basically dry, but finishes in a swirl of honey and spice.
