A beautiful and interesting Sauvignon Blanc that’s as dry as anything out there, with no trade of unripeness. Crisp acids frame pure, clean flavors of gooseberries, citrons, limes and grapefruits, wrapped into a creamy texture. Brilliant with ceviche or by itself.
A good followup to the 2008. The cool ’09 vintage has resulted in similarly dry citrus, lemongrass, gooseberry and mineral flavors. Lacks a bit of ripeness, which pushes it into green territory, with resulting acidity, but a pretty, clean sipper.
