After a string of tough vintages that didn't wear well on this famous brand's Sauvignons, the latest release is back up to snuff. Heady notes of lime blossom, peach and gooseberry lead the pack, with subtle aromas of green bell pepper and dried herbs following, to remind you where you are in the Sauvignon Blanc world. In the mouth a creamy texture and fleshy fruit are freshened by lively acidity. Juicy lime on the finish makes it easy to take another sip, especially if a plate of sushi or spicy southeast Asian food is nearby.
The fresh and lively flavors of green apple, Meyer lemon and lime sherbet show good intensity, matched by refreshing acidity. Drink now. 1,300,000 cases imported.
