Youthful and delightfully fresh, the 2021 Sauvignon Blanc offers an exhilarating bouquet of lemon curd, honeysuckle nectar, and white peach aromas. Layers of shortbread, beeswax, flint, and kaffir lime scents appear with time and heighten the complexity. The entry begins seductively taut, but soon widens, expansively coating the palate without losing precision. Lemon candy, clementine, and quince paste flavors gush harmoniously while sea spray, chamomile, and rosemary flowers dot the retro nasal recesses. This cerebral wine finishes long with touches of wet pebbles, lanolin, and tangy marmalade notes dancing in the seamless layers.

This is an outstanding white, with 91% Sauvignon Blanc, 8% Sémillon and 1% Sauvignon Vert, fermented in 92% French oak and the remainder in stainless-steel tanks and concrete eggs. Bright and fresh in peach and wet stone, it is nicely textured, with just enough weight and breadth to add complexity and structure.

This has wonderful intensity and firmness to the fleshy core of nectarine, dried pineapple, Key lime and honeysuckle. Mouthwatering finish. Drink now. 6,299 cases made.
