2016 Sauvignon Blanc

Pale straw in color, the nose of this Sauvignon Blanc is wild and exotic evoking memories of a spring meadow in full bloom. Fresh honeydew melons, rose petal, pink grapefruit and anise round out the aromas. This wine comes from 42-year-old vines and is both earthy and fruity, the palate a blend of spices, green fruits and herbs. Cinnamon and fresh marjoram blend with lemon curd, cumquat and crabapple to evoke an exotic result. The mouthfeel is vibrant and marked by texture, with elements of rose petal, jalapeño and pine nuts found in the long finish.
