Eric Guido

The nose is spicy and intense, while showing all of the textbook nuances of Sauvignon Blanc, displaying gooseberry, grassy sour lime and hints of kiwi, as smoky mineral tones develop in the glass.  It’s wonderfully textural on the palate, both sweet and sour, as the cheeks pucker from zesty citrus-tinged acids, yet there’s a ripeness to the fruit here that creates beautiful contrasts.  The finish is long, perfumed and full of tension, leaving the mouth watering for another sip.  The 2018 G.B. Burlotto Dives is fermented in large acacia wood barrels which gives it so much complexity and presence on the palate.
