Straw colored. Very aromatic with grapefruit, tropical fruit, and cut grass on the nose. Lime on the palate with bright acidity and great minerality.

Grapefruit and lime, well balanced with mild acidity. Very nice!

Superb.
The nose explodes with tropical fruits.
The palette is delicate and playful. White flowers, nectarines and peach co-mingle. Finishes with baked bread, minerals and a hint of melon. It possesses a sexy weight and density on the mid palette. This is a super summer go-to.

Alright; lemon, lime, subtle floral; slight butter finish; unremarkable

Recently purchased by Bill Foley of Foley Family Wines, continuing traditions of Fred Furth who founded Chalk Hill in 1972, which encompasses 280 acres of vineyards. A blend of 84% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sauvignon Gris and 6% Sauvignon Musque, the latter 2 adding an interesting dynamic to the wine and distinctive aromas. One of the few SB's to see some oak giving this wine complexity. Peach, herb and earthy tones, well balanced with acidity, smooth yet robust on a lingering finish ending with citrus notes.

Exotic, fruit-driven perfume wafts from the glass. Kiwi and passion fruits are supported by rocks and stones.
Palette is consistent, with citrus fruits, bright acidity and persistence. Finishes vibrant. This is our fave SB below the $20 pain threshold.
