Popped and poured. Drank in a large line-up of wines so no formal notes. What I can say with certainty is that this is a strong follow-up to the 2017 vintage which was an absolute fire-cracker and one of the best Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blends I've had from the New World. The 2018 seems to have slightly more subdued fruit but the same racy acidity and minerality which is what make the Alder Grove SB's so exciting anyway. A wine to drink now although they won't go bad anytime soon. I intent to grab more.
