A plump, nicely concentrated Sauvignon Blanc, the 2009 Mount Beautiful doesn’t have the most intense aromatics, but is holding on to its weighty melon and fig flavors and lingering citrus finish. Drink up.
A simple, fresh and appealing Riesling, light to medium in body and off dry in style. Apple and citrus notes dominate, with some slightly riper melon notes evident as well. Drink over the next few years.
