Raventos I Blanc

The Quivira Collection

Wine Creek Ranch Sauvignon Blanc 2018

I think Quivira is quietly making some of the most enjoyable Sauvignon Blancs in Sonoma. I fell in love with their Alder Grove designation but this version from their “Q Collection” is no less interesting. In fact, the oak treatment is rather unique as this was aged in a combination of new and used acacia barrels as well as used barrels from the Jura and Champagne. I’m not sure how those all translate to the wine but the result is compelling! It presents a very pale straw color in the glass. The nose is powerful, pungent even with pomelo, jalapeño pepper (you know, the garden fresh ones you chop up and throw into a margarita) and tarragon. On the palate, it dazzles with bright key lime, passion fruit and minerals. So zippy and delicious and yet, there’s a deft creaminess to it that is remarkable. So balanced. This was sublime with Peruvian-styled ceviche. — 21 hours ago

Here is what think... the California people are creating possibly some of the best Sauvignon Blancs anywhere. We bought 2 cases of 24 different Sauvignon Blancs when the daughters were home and seldom did we find something that wasn’t enjoyable. We switch to a $20 New Zealand wine in the middle and it was a acid trip...if you haven’t tried the 2019 Rombauer SB... you’d better, pair it with raw Oysters.... Fantastic Primo....

Huia

Marlbourough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

It is Friday night, let the weekend begin. I have opened the 2019 Huia Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand. A Biodynamic, organically grown grapes from Clair & Mike Allan.

This nose is full of citrus notes, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, melon, white flowers, herbs and minerality.

On the palate there is plenty of lime, grapefruit, guava, white peach, melon, nectarine and good minerality.

This wine is medium bodied with a smooth silky mouthfeel and medium + acidity that moves seamlessly into a long crisp fresh citrus finish. Have a great weekend, please be safe and stay healthy. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Lapis Luna

North Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Pale lemon in color.

Fruity nose of lemons, citrus, melons, apples and white pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity, crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with citrus, limes, green apples, grapefruits, bitter herbs and spices.

Spicy finish with almonds.

This is a nice Sauvignon Blanc from California. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel. Nicely balanced, and neither sweet nor bitter.

A very nice pool wine that everyone would enjoy. Good for parties.

I had it by the pool with a cheese plate.

Domaine Etienne et Sébastien Riffault

Les Quarterons Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

I’ve heard for years about the wildly extroverted and extra-ordinary Sancerre wines from Sebastien Riffault. His wines are an outlier of ripeness in a sea of lean high acid chalky juice. Rich with an amber glow.

He picks his Sauvignon Blanc at the last minute to reach a level of ripeness you’d never expect could come from the tiny cold pocket of the Loire.

Now I like both styles, but this is super fun and something completely new to me.

Think juicy peach, fresh apricot, and bright yellow pineapple. But still with high acid - nothing flabby.

Dog Point Vineyard

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Ok I have already rated this before but I must admit it goes well with the fish curry Sri Lankan style. Lemon flavour comes out more than the grassy notes of this Marlborough Sav. Blanc. Feels like holidays with 30 deg. and a crispy white. Cheers — 13 hours ago
