Bright fruit to the point of juice. But yet dry with plenty of acidity. Indigenous yeast

9.0

Aromatic, but not extremely varietal. Palate is long and persistent. Showing no oxidation yet.

A nice fruit-forward quaff with more RS than usually expected with a Sauv Blanc, but the RS made it a very nice pairing with pork chops in a spicy Traverse City cherry bbq sauce. Tasty.

2008 sauv Blanc, to be honest, this wind is ridiculous. Super expressive, very grounded, and freaking delicious. If you haven't tried it, you really should.

Interesting FLX Sauv Blanc.
Aromas and flavors of peach, lemon and slate. Hint of grass. Creamy texture. High acidity. Interesting

Shaw never disappoints. Probably shouldn’t have held it this long, but it really was good with dinner. None of the grassy or grapefruit notes that typically turn me off to Sauvignon Blanc.
