Presqu'ile Sauvignon Blanc 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley|
Intensely fragrant and juicy, offering a harmonious blend of fleshy blood orange, makrut lime, Key lime pie, marmalade and lemon curd notes. Gains momentum on the finish, where the acidity and flavors crescendo. Drink now. 69 cases made.
This bottling from an extremely cool-climate vineyard is light and easy on the nose, with ripe apples, sharp herbs, moss and an inherent grassy character deep within. It's extremely lively on the palate, with compellingly delivered acidity and a lime-skin tension carrying flavors of dried dill and sharp lemony citrus. It's one of the better Sauv Blancs of the vintage.
