2019 Spottswoode - Sauvignon Blanc (92 pts) @spottswoodewinery ℹ️ This wine is 98% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Semillon. The grapes come from both Napa Valley (63%) and Sonoma Mountain (37%). The grapes are fermented in various vessels from stainless steel barrels, French oak barrels, clay amphora, ceramic and cement cuves. 👁 Pale lemon color 👃 Pronounced intensity on the nose. Aromas of grapefruit pith, yuzu, key lime, honeydew melon, Greek yogurt, and lemongrass. 👄 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, medium+ alcohol (14.1%), and medium+ body. There is a pleasant creaminess on the palate from lees stirring. The finish is medium length finish that ends with key lime, grapefruit pith, and lemongrass. 🔔 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc is a benchmark for high-end Sauvignon Blanc in California. This is not your simple Sauvignon Blanc, nor your oak infused Fumé Blanc. Thoughtful choices on many fronts, from grape selection to fermentation vessels that all culminate in a seductive wine. The wine jumps out of the glass and packs loads of flavor on the palate. Year over year, these wines are always impeccable. 💰 ~$42 #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine
