    Wine Spectator:  "Succulent and juicy, with fresh pineapple, marmalade, Key lime and papaya flavors that sing with purity and focus, set on a supple frame and featuring fresh acidity that weaves in and out. For all the intensity, this shows an effortlessness and elegance. Drink now."  Mar 2018 

    Winery:  "The unusual style of our Sauvignon Blanc has been created by a confluence of factors. A key component of this wine is the highly floral Sauvignon Musqué selection from Sancerre, which comprises one-third of the blend. The Shenandoah clone balances this out nicely with its classic herbal, somewhat grassy character. For the first time, a substantial proportion of grapes were harvested from our own young estate vineyards — nearly 30 percent.

    On the palate, vibrant acidity is finely balanced with a rich, creamy mouthfeel creating a unique textural experience — reminiscent of a refreshing blood orange sorbet. The finish is broad and lingers with sweet pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon zest."
