Grapefruit, lemon, tart apple, hay and ripe peach. Vibrant acidity and great minerality.

I am an Ehlers fan girl especially since Laura Diaz Muñoz became winemaker. This may be one before her personally overseen wines came out but it sings of things she told me was into. Which is supreme balance and goodly acid. It is all grapefruit and stones and hints at grass. Think this vintage was before Laura got her hands on the winery but she was happy to rep it so CANNOT wait to taste the next vintage because Laura is boss

Classic Napa profile - clean citrus fruit, herbs and fresh acidity.

A few months ago while changing fulfillment centers, we discovered a few remaining cases of the 2013 Ehlers Estate Sauvignon Blanc. The cool thing about our wines is that they're made so well, they last longer than perhaps expected. This Sancerre-style Sauvignon Blanc is simply stunning two vintages later, with mouthwatering fruit, a textured palate, and lively acid. I need to hold back a bottle or two of 2015, it seems. Fantastic.

2014 Ehlers Estate Sauvignon Blanc. As this wine warms up a bit, I'm getting tropical fruits. Lovely lovely tropical fruits.
