A brilliant yellow, gold hue invites the senses and draws attention the wine’s supremely fragrant notes of honeysuckle, pear, orange peel, green apple, roasted fig, and a touch of French oak. Ripe, round, and exotic, the palate is treated to a supple and concentrated mouthfeel supported with melon, fresh pineapple, and citrus flavors. The finish is positively rich and lingering with a lively seam of acidity to add dimension.
A surprising sauv all the way. Citrus, floral, and a distinct mineral note on the nose. There is an initial strong mineral note that is quickly followed by a bright herbaceous quality with bell peppers and black pepper, but the mineral persists. It almost takes on an oaked quality. Far and away my favorite sauv blanc.
