2019 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Napa County - Sonoma County, USA (750ml)
The producer sources from a handful of exceptional sites here, including Hyde in Carneros and Farina on Sonoma Mountain, as well as its own St. Helena estate. Juicy and lengthy with power and substance, it is fresh and well integrated, blossoming in bright lemon peel, peach and guava.

Fans of this pure, clean, crisp mineral-driven gem will not be disappointed with the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Opening with vibrant lemon and lime juice scents with hints of mandarin peel, coriander seed, chalk dust and wild thyme, it bursts with zesty flavor in the mouth. Medium-bodied, there's a lovely satiny suggestion to the texture and lots of oyster shell and pebbly layers, finishing deliciously refreshing.

A medium-bodied white with intense aromas of guava, passion fruit, lemon zest and green apple. Fresh, dry and fruity with bright, tangy acidity. Drink now.

One of my favorite Sauvignons from Napa comes from this great estate, and their 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is another winner, revealing a light gold hue as well as lively notes of white grapefruit, candied lemon, and white flowers. Medium-bodied, lightly textured, and beautifully balanced, with a salty, crisp, dry finish, it's ideal for enjoying over the coming 3-5 years or so.

This Sauvignon Blanc jumps out of the glass with pink grapefruit, Asian pear, white peach, lemon oil, lime leaf, and lemongrass aromatics. The palate confirms the nose and is extremely bright and tense, showing great balance. Bright guava, juicy stone fruit, and hints of pineapple pair with a grapefruit acidity that lead to a long finish. Frequent lees bâtonnage adds a level of creaminess and more layers of complexity. Showing beautifully now, this wine also has the structure and sophistication to age gracefully for enjoyment in the future.
Blend: 98% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Semillon
