Bae and I went to Kontakosta Vineyard when we stayed at a beautiful bed and breakfast beach house minutes within walking distance of the place.
We visited three vineyards, and this one tucked away at the very edge of a large lawn leading up to the shoreline had expansive views of the Atlantic. Just a memorable, scenic experience smacking of adventure, tranquility, and wonderful wine.
Had saved this for a year and the vintage is 2018, so it’s right at the recommended two year mark for Sauvignon Blanc.
Soon as I popped open the bottle, the fragrance just wafted into the air — strong Meyer lemons, grapefruit zest, pine resin, and a woodsy appeal.
Lemon peel open up to a flowery sweetness, pine, and a slight buttery mouthfeel.
Reading into it, I’m getting a honey quality that texturizes and coats every sip.
Cannot wait to go back to make new memories and pick up the other bottles in their lineup. — 9 months ago
