@Delectable Wine this is the Hall Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasted at the Taste of Yountville.

Pale lemon yellow. Fresh nose with layers of white flowers, honeysuckle and a bit of candied lemon. Medium acidity (6/10) with a medium body. Clean and very dry on the palate with notes of citrus and stone fruits as well as wet rocks. Starts to get richer with some air adding in some creamy textures. Long and dry finish. Drink till 2022.

Inaugural release of this bottling by Hall Wines. Made up of 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Knights Valley AVA. Aged for 9 months in 30% new French oak barrels.

California Chenin Blanc 2016

The wine has a light greenish tint and offers a pleasing nose of peaches, cantaloupes and flowers.  The palate follows suit, with stone fruit and melons and an easy acidity. The wine finishes sweet but crisp. — 6 days ago

Our 2nd wine of the night paired perfectly with caramelized deep sea scallop on sweat miso coulis Asian vegetables. Punching well above its weight it presents great nose, near perfect acidity perfected by the 18% Sémillon. Barreled for 5 months in 10% French oak then stainless steel giving it great graceful concentration and a touch of tropical fruit. We enjoyed this wine so much that we bought a 2nd bottle to sip by the fire the next day.Cheers 🍷🇺🇸🇨🇦 — 4 days ago

Villa Maria

Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc 2016

The pale, golden-green wine is quite aromatic, grassy with loads of grapefruit and lemon. The palate shows lots of grapefruit and other citrus, along with a racy acidity. It finishes clean and bright. — 7 days ago

Broc Cellars

Shell Creek Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2017

Chenin Blanc is Broc Cellars’ best race horse - both sparkling and still versions. The 2017 is hazy, unfiltered, and is significantly more pronounced (than the sparkling) with bruised and baked fruits of all kinds.

Roasted pineapple, grilled peaches, and caramelized lemon wedges. Terrific.

Nose of dry limestone, honey, beeswax and dried apricots.

Palate has chalky apricot, peach skin, nice acid balance and medium finish.

Brings pleasure to the palate, at $14 also bringing pleasure to the wallet.

Palliser Estate

Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Intense and satisfying! Nose of jasmine and lemon grass. Palate features passion fruit, slight grapefruit, and ginger. I’m starting to turn the corner with SB and the New Zealand wines are playing a large part in this. — 8 days ago
