Lot 825 White Meritage 2020

This wine is lightly tinted yellow. The nose is full of citrus and minerals - that smell of a wet sidewalk is in there. There is also a trace of apricot and a hint of an herbal note - not full-blown grassiness, but edging in that direction. The palate is very clean and lean. The citrus takes center stage with the minerality staying close. I usually think California SauvBlanc is riper than anywhere else in the world, but this example does not follow suit. It is a bit tart, but with the usual Sauvignon trappings quite muted. I suppose the Semillon helps out in that area. The acidity is light enough for easy sipping, yet strong enough to handle some non-demanding pairing jobs. I think this is actually a pretty good Sauvignon Blanc for people who think Sauvignon Blanc comes on too strong. — 2 months ago
