Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Wines of Substance

One whiff of this wine and I’m all in. In fact, diving in head first! From the onset citrus, hay, wet earth, thyme and marjoram. Giving way to a rich, lively and full palate and finishes with tropical notes and seashells. So good that I’m going to stay and splash around in it.

Reviews

  • "90 points. The white Bordeaux blend from this label, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Sunset Vineyard is 100% Sauvignon Blanc brought up in barrel. Notes of lemon curd, hints of citrus and white grapefruit all flow to a rounded and supple white that has integrated acidity and a clean finish. It’s a seriously good white that’s well worth its going rate." (Wine Advocate)
