Pale yellow with pleasing aromas of citrus and sweet peaches. One of the few barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc's which adds a wonderful toasty oak flavor setting this wine apart from the rest. Complex palate of flavors, fresh fruit, lemons, grapefruit, peaches, Asian pears and baked apple with tea and spicy acidity. Slight herb notes with a smooth and creamy well balanced finish ending with a gentle sweet character. A Fav!

Always satisfying. Just a great balance of oak; not too much.

Surprisingly fruity with a minimal haverbaceous components. This probably won't please fans of Marlborough but it's a lovely wine in its own right. White peach, grapefruit, lemon and ginger all combine in a crisp, fruit-forward bundle.

A fav with some great Sushi. Pale yellow with pleasing aromas of citrus and peaches. One of the few barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc's which adds a wonderful toasty oak flavor setting this wine apart from the rest. Complex palate of flavors, fresh fruit, lemons, grapefruit, peaches and Asian pears. Slight earthiness with a smooth and creamy well balanced finish ending with a gentle sweet character. Very nice!

You would not know this was a Sauv Blanc. Pears, kiwi, melons. Soft edges.

Holding up very nicely. Ripe pear with cinnamon spices, yellow apple, white peach, green tropical fruits, green banana, coconut and dill. I am guessing she used American oak on the wine.
