15’ Farella La Luce Sauvignon Blanc. Stone fruits. Lemon peel. Healthy dose of acidity. They sell most of the there grapes to Realm & Lail. Food pairing SB Edit- Tasting much better then upon release date! The acid has calm down quite a bit after about 30 minutes in the glass. Very enjoyable. These high acid wines...don’t drink them so cold ,cellar temperature is just fine! — 2 days ago
From reading the tasting notes online we decided to give this a little decant before drinking. Light to medium greenish yellow. Tight on the nose with a touch of guava, some more tropical fruit notes, and a little bit of white floral notes. Needed about two hours for the acidity to round out a little bit. Heavy acidity (7/10) and light plus to medium bodied. Layered palate with notes of tropical fruits, some citrus too and crushed white rocks. Drink from 2018 till 2023.
Just like you said @Ron R delicious! — 18 days ago
Reminds me of a rock star you idolize as a kid that gets old and fat. 18 months ago this was amazing. Time hasn’t been on its side. The big fruit and creaminess from the first album was pretty flat and uninspiring. Still a good SB, but not what it used to be. — 8 days ago
This wine’s nose offers up more of that wonderful grassy aroma than I usually find in California SauvBlancs. There’s a touch of orange peel and lemon zest in there, too. The mouthfeel is medium full and graced with a zippy acidity. There is a rich minerality here, as expected, with tropical fruit flavors trying their best to overshadow the stark rocks. The rocks win. Lay out an olive and cheese plate if you don't have any shellfish lying about. — 13 days ago
A pretty little sav Blanc that somehow avoids any semblance of a pina colada at jimmy buffets margaritaville (no shade toward margaritaVille jimmy buffet or tropical savs). A great wine to start the night or finish one. Sharp and strong enough to take an ice cube without any judgment. Subtle enough for a night in but fun enough for a night out. I do feel lucky (but not THAT lucky). Cheers to fifi! 🙌 — 10 days ago
