From the current release. So much structure here and it’s extremely oxidative. On the nose its creme brulee and aged brie but on the palate it brings white peach and orange oil with nice acidity to provide some lift.

On the nose, a little wet wool, dried; pineapple, apricots, honey notes, marmalade, orange/citrus notes. The nose and the palate are similar. The body is thick & round with a nice rich finish. Just released.

13.5% alc.
Another impressive (aged) wine from Kalin Cellars.
Holding up fantastically over the course of a 3-hour dinner.

Amazing bottle. In the blind taste, all 8 individuals tasting guessed Chardonnay. This 2001 Sauvignon Blanc gave me grapefruit and some crazy funky nose (still can’t put words to it). What a wine. Thanks to @Benjamin Keator for providing.
