Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) “The late cool growing season contributed to create wines of extraordinary complexity and vibrancy. The nose exudes layers of fruit, floral aromas and a hint of verbena. Stone fruits, grapefruit and tropical notes enhance the often present green melon, cut grass and honeysuckle. The structure and softness on the palate promote the expansion and persistence of all these fresh flavors. This vintage finishes with mouthwatering crispness and pure fruit.

As a result, it pairs beautifully with a wide range of vibrant dishes, but also offers balance and completeness when sipped on its own. Enjoy while young.” (hide)

    (From 2011 Vintage) "One of the first 2011 Sauvignon Blancs to be released, this is fresh, fruity and zesty in acidity. Like a walk through a spring rain, it awakens the senses, with savory citrus, lemongrass, vanilla and mineral flavors that finish dry and spicy." 91pts, Editors’ Choice. —S.H.

    (From 2010 Vintage) Rating: 90pts - As reviewed by Wine Enthusiast on 07/14/11. There's no oak on this wine, which let's the fruit star. It does a bravura performance, with turns of pineapples, limes, gooseberries and tart mandarin oranges that finish in a swirl of spices. Acidity adds a brilliant zestiness, and even though the wine is only 12.9 alc by volume, this wine is totally dry. EDITORS CHOICE. -S.H.
