- 92 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Erin Brooks: "The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc contains 60% estate fruit this year and 42% of the blend comes from Sauvignon Musqué. Barrel fermented and aged in 18% new oak with twice-weekly lees stirring, it has a gregarious nose with gooseberry, tart kiwi, tarragon, cut grass, white peaches and elderflower plus touches of lime and stone. Light to medium-bodied, it offers great flavor intensity with bright, zippy acidity and a long, lightly textured finish. 12,500 cases produced."
- 90 Punkte WINE ENTHUSIAST, Virginie Boone: "Rich and rounded in stone fruit, pineapple and mango flavors, this hearty white is made in a substantial, full-bodied style that is opulently lush. A length of complementary oak adds to the complexity and integration, finishing in a snap of crème brûlée."
- 93 Punkte WINESPECTATOR, MaryAnn Worobiec: "A pretty thread of orange water adds an aromatic lift to the core of nectarine, apricot and lemon zest flavors, set on a succulent, fleshy frame. Dried ginger, honeysuckle and melon notes linger on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. 12,500 cases made."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||We are excited to announce that this inviting new Sauvignon Blanc contains 60 percent of our own estate fruit. Even though the Meredith and Maefield vineyards were planted recently, in 2015, they are producing delicious fruit in abundant quantity! Sauvignon Musqué makes up 42% of the blend; the balance is the Shenandoah clone. The wine was fully barrel fermented in Tonnellerie Cadus barrels, 18% new. Lees stirring was then done twice weekly for six months, building luscious body. The aroma of this wine is compelling, virtually reaching out and grabbing our attention. Yellow peach, melon, guava and crisp Fuji apple are accented with hints of tropical mango and pineapple. Lime, Minneola tangelo and orange blossom lend citrus notes. Accents of dry summer grass, vanilla-toned panna cotta and toasted crème brûlée create complexity. An underlying minerality adds further sophistication. The rich palate coats the tongue balanced with hints of yummy Creamsicle and Ruby Red grapefruit. Refreshing acidity and a mouthwatering finish cap the sensual experience of this exceptional Sauvignon Blanc. Delightful now, with bottle age, this wine will be a knockout! My good friend Chef John Ash, the Godfather of Wine Country cuisine, created Kaffir Lime and Coconut Soup with Black Cod as an homage to his favorite fish. The combination of Kaffir lime and coconut milk with the slightly spicy broth makes an outstanding pairing with our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy!|
