THE PARING SAUVIGNON BLANC 2016: Defined by powerful fruit and balanced by mouthwatering freshness; an exotic, decadently textured and electrically framed bottle of sauvignon blanc.
MATT DEES’ WINEMAKER NOTES: Classic lemon curd and lime zest aromas. Notes of grilled white peach and agave nectar. Dense and complete on the palate with a beautiful crisp pear-like texture. So satisfying. Finishes fresh with herbal complexity and hints of ripe green melon. Perfect white for the summer months.
90 POINTS “The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc shows the greener, grassier side of Sauvignon, but balances that with a good bit of textural richness. Drink it over the next year or two.” — Antonio Galloni Vinous September 2018
93 POINTS “Based on 85% Sauvignon and 15% Semillon, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc offers Loire-like notes of racy green citrus, green herbs, gooseberry, and tart grapefruit. It hits the palate with a layered, concentrated style, bright, racy acidity, and ample length. It's a terrific effort that drinks well past its humble price point.”—Jeb Dunnuck jebdunnuck.com, October 2018
