‘15 still tasting great, Cal Nicholson spent his youth in So. CA & after a long successful marketing career he hung up his spurs to follow his 2 real interests in life – surfing and wine making. Jones is the maiden name of Cal’s wife Pam. A wonderful wine. Pale lemon, aromas of citrus, stone fruits with honey notes. On the palate peach, crisp apple and melon flavors with citrus zest wrapped in lively acidity. Long finish ending with mineral citrus finish. Nice! Small production. — 7 days ago
Lean aromatic spot of light, clean, almost frosted lemon, lime juice, lime pith, and gooseberry aromas. Chalky. With zippy, bright lemon zest, nectarine, dried starfruit, green-white underripe blackberries, black currant leaf, and grapefruit pith. Amazing Sancerre with buoyancy and ethereal grace.

This wine’s nose bears the New Zealand standard for Sauvignon Blanc - grassy, herbal, grapefruity and a lanolin note thrown in to the mix. The grapefruit comes on strong on the palate and brings the herbal stuff in through the back door. Acidity is great and the finish is long and full of citrus.

Our first time with this this Californian Sauvignon Blanc, we saw it before heading back across the border noticing the “Wine Enthusiast” tag giving it a 90 point rating and said “What the Heck” buying our duty free limit. A delightful and approachable wine is so different from the Sauvignon Blancs that we are use to. Representing an amalgam from selected North Coast vineyards it offers a balanced citrus and floral notes that are distinctive yet not overwhelming. We tasted grapefruit, green apple, washed stone and hints of straw combined into wonderful juicy finish. We will be buying this one again. 13.5% alc/vol. ~$16.00 USD Cheers 🍷🇨🇦🇺🇸 — 15 days ago
Impressive - effusive evolving nose very complex for NZ SB: big time grassy w/hint of savory herbs, but quickly pivots to green-filtered fruit: pineapple, guava, and lime - tart zesty vibrant citrusy w/out being nervy. They got something really good going on here — 13 days ago
Color is really light egg white. Nose of flowering note, light honey, crayon, spice, nectarine, and ripe pineapple. Nose is decent with tropical fruits rhythms. Taste follows the nose with addition of zest and nice acidity. Good balance of sweetness fro the fruits and honey mix with quality acidity. Aftertaste is also medium long with more zest, and flowering note. With this price tag, you can hardly beat it. — 16 days ago
