Pale yellow with pleasing aromas of peaches, herbs and citrus. Pronounced palate of flavors, big ripe peaches with melon and fresh lemons adding a bit of grapefruit. Slight wet stone mineral character, smooth and creamy, well balanced medium+ finish ending with a gentle sweet character.

Apple, grapefruit, limestone, white peach and apricot. Great acidity & minerality.

Pale yellow. Peaches and citrus aromas. Medium plus acidity. Rich mouthfeel and mineral finish. Crisp. Fresh. Amazing value.

Smells like apple juice. On the palette very similar, super sweet for a SB. Only with a bit of time on the palette & increasingly through the finish, the acidity really comes through & provides balance. Medium long finish. Like it when it hits its peak & balances out, but a little too much is all sweet for the price.

One of the best whites I've had in years. The nose is powerful: vegetal, sweet & acidic. Mostly sweet apple on the palate, with growing grassy notes. The finish is phenomenal - great mouth coating, evolves & becomes less sweet, more sour apple with time. Really lingers - live it!

Refreshing, none of that grapefruit taint sometimes found with sauv blanc. Some honey/apricot lingers on the palate.

A tame Sauvignon Blanc, you can tell the sunlight exposure changes this SB from others in cooler climates. Enjoyed it overall though.
