A strong candidate for the most deliciously mouth-watering and oh-so refreshing Sauvignon Blanc we’ve ever judged. Wow! The new Georgia bottling (a best-barrel bottling) is once again a uniquely dazzling wine and without question the most opulent Sauvignon Blanc produced in America. No expense is spared and what shows in the glass is simply magnificent. The bouquet is intense and loaded with passionfruit, kiwi, orange peel. This new 2018 vintage offers a galaxy of awe-inspiring flavors including stone fruit, honeysuckle, ruby red grapefruit, lemon scone and white tea balanced throughout a voluptuous texture. This is a stunner right now and will continue to thrill for at least 4-5 years.

What a complex nose this has, offering aromas of honeysuckle, hawthorn, smoke, dried apple and lime curd. Hints of spice and ginger. It’s full-bodied, creamy and elegant. Wonderfully balanced elements of ripe fruit and toast, dried herb and spice. Fantastic.

Coming from a dry-farmed, three-acre vineyard in Yountville, the 2018 Georgia Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged for 19 months in French oak barrels, 70% new. It slides seductively out of the glass with notes of pink grapefruit, white peaches and lemon drops plus hints of coriander seed, mandarin peel and honeysuckle. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a gorgeous satiny texture with intense stone fruit and citrus layers supplemented by loads of savory and mineral nuances, finishing long with a zesty lift.
