Shouldn't be your last... Seek out pre-2008 bottles and taste the late Master's hand at work. Lovely stuff, holds a long time in a proper cellar.

Montagu Wines

Las Francas Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015

My first Montagu Sauv Blanc. Opened late and tried it before it warmed a bit. Once it did, it became so aromatic! Delicious SB and a great value. Tropical fruits, guava and even a crazy banana note the closer it came to room temp. Fascinating. I’m serious about the banana. — 5 days ago

I am crazy about that SB myself. I’ve got a couple left that I’d like to age a bit because of the oak used. The ‘16 should be coming out soon. 🤞🏼

Villa Maria

Early Release Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Love love Marlborough SB....this wine holds a very special place in my heart. Years ago I was training to run a Marathon and ended up with an injury...not able to run the 22 miler and very frustrated I drank a whole bottle of this....Anyway... this wine in one word... Acid! Also gooseberry..grapefruit..cat box sort of...(yes). So crisp & delicious and can go down way to easy..🤔 — 4 days ago

Good story, nice review.

Chesebro

Cedar Lane Sauvignon Blanc 2016

This wine has a lovely golden tint. The nose is full of citrus zest and a lanolin component, only a slight grassiness. On the palate, there’s more lemon, apricot and a gorgeous salinity with a zippy acidity. The mouth is full and rich, while the long finish leaves lemon peel lingering. — 7 days ago

Arkenstone

Estate Howell Mountain Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Medium body Sauvignon Blanc from Howell Mountain. Perfect pair for some Caribbean spiny lobsters. Balance of acidity and fruit. But not the typical grapefruits of most SB’s. Almost tropical with pineapple and even banana. — 3 days ago

Edna Valley Vineyard

Central Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Founded in 1980, Winery is a partnership between Chalone Wine Group and Paragon Vineyard, defining the Central Coast appellation for which it is named. Aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and subtle spice. On the palate melon and peach flavors with citrus zest, vivid acidity, nicely balanced on medium finish. Good value. Tasting Sample. — 11 days ago

Intrada Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Enjoyed today as a "rando" wine (you never know who you're going to run into at Classic). Tasted blind, I would never have guessed that this was a Sauv Blanc. And, never would have guessed it was an 6 year old sauv blanc at that. This wine has a very dominant stone ground fruit nose and it comes through in the palate towards the end. Lots of lemon curd, tropical fruit, and peach on the nose. This wine has just about everything. Has good weight, great density. Very silky on the opening, and just so robust and rich. Becomes more "mineral driven" towards the finish, almost finishing with a lemon zest kind of note that just makes you want to take another sip. WOW. For a white wine, this has just about everything you could want. — 12 days ago

Sad to have just missed this.

Kuhlman Cellars

Escondido Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

At the price, this is probably one of the best QPR buys in SB. Pours a light straw into the glass. Nose of lemon and peach. The entry of this wine is mostly lemon rind, and some pineapple. Finishes with a hint of limestone on the palate, strong lemon notes, some tart, makes your mouth pucker. Good grip to this wine. Will be a great summer drinker, if I can make any of my remaining bottles last that long. Sadly, none of them will make it I'm almost certain. — 9 days ago
