Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||California, Napa County|
This Sauvignon Blanc jumps out of the glass with pink grapefruit, Asian pear, white peach, lemon oil, lime leaf, and lemongrass aromatics. The palate confirms the nose and is extremely bright and tense, showing great balance. Bright guava, juicy stone fruit, and hints of pineapple pair with a grapefruit acidity that lead to a long finish. Frequent lees bâtonnage adds a level of creaminess and more layers of complexity. Showing beautifully now, this wine also has the structure and sophistication to age gracefully for enjoyment in the future.
Blend: 98% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Semillon
The producer sources from a handful of exceptional sites here, including Hyde in Carneros and Farina on Sonoma Mountain, as well as its own St. Helena estate. Juicy and lengthy with power and substance, it is fresh and well integrated, blossoming in bright lemon peel, peach and guava.
Fans of this pure, clean, crisp mineral-driven gem will not be disappointed with the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Opening with vibrant lemon and lime juice scents with hints of mandarin peel, coriander seed, chalk dust and wild thyme, it bursts with zesty flavor in the mouth. Medium-bodied, there's a lovely satiny suggestion to the texture and lots of oyster shell and pebbly layers, finishing deliciously refreshing.
