Winemaker 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

WS 89
Wine Spectator

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

The Wine Advocate

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.

International Wine Cellar

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.
