Zippy and bright and tart finish, but like a sour beer, you wanna keep going — 10 days ago
Skin fermented in the Texas high plains. Cider color, very bretty as wines go, right on the edge of being too much, but it’s restrained as it comes to a close. Highly tart. It ends up being very refreshing in spite of, or perhaps because of, all this skin. — a month ago
Tonight's wine I have opened another Sauvignon Blanc, the 2018 Allan Scott Family Winemakers Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.
The nose shows expressions of peach, tangerine, grapefruit, guava, lemongrass and minerality.
On the palate the nose is confirmed with grapefruit, tangerine, white peach, orange peel, peach skin and nice mineral notes.
The wine is medium bodied with high acidity that leads to a long clean crisp fruit finish. These New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs really have a lot to offer and I will be drinking more in the coming months. I will also try more Loire Valley, Bordeaux and Alsace Sauvignon Blanc's to try and round out my experiences. We can look forward to the weekend full of family and friendship. Have a plan and be safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 2 days ago

Yesterday late afternoon with my wife while visiting my son and his wife in Arkansas we had the pleasure of opening the 2017 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.
On the nose there was beautiful aromatics of grapefruit, guava, lime, grass, orange peel, white flowers and minerality.
On the palate the nose was confirmed with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lime, orange peel, herbaceous notes and minerality.
The wine is well balanced, medium bodied with high acidity and a nice effervescence quality that leads right into a long fresh, clean crisp finish. A very nice expression of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. This wine was enjoyed by all and everyone expressed their full enjoyment. Have a great week this week and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 5 days ago
