Winemaker Notes:

This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc begins with enticing aromas of lemongrass, lychee, passionfruit, melon and pineapple, followed by hints of white nectarine and lime. On the juicy palate, a subtle viscosity is perfectly balanced by refreshing acidity that adds precision to the citrus and tropical fruit flavors, while driving the wine to a bright, zesty finish.

Blend: 85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Semillon.

Wine AdvocateThe 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is a little youthfully closed to begin, revealing with coaxing fragrant lime blossom, yuzu and grapefruit scents plus hints of wet pebbles and mown grass. Medium-bodied, the palate has plenty of citrusy zest on offer with a racy backbone and chalky finish.

Wine EnthusiastBlended with 15% Sémillon, this is a large-production white that is earthy and sharply high-toned in grapefruit, guava and flint. Plenty of acidity boosts the midpalate of concentration and richness, finding balance in the end.

Wine SpectatorFresh citrus and Asian pear flavors are clean and bright, set on a light frame. A touch of apricot emerges on the finish. Drink now. 45,700 cases made. - MW
