On the Nose I get amazing aromatics of mandarin, lime zest, white flower, orange blossom, honey suckle, guava, baked apple, and honey dew melon. There are some really nice creamy bread notes as well. One thing Sauvignon Blanc more often then not excels in is the aroma department, and this wine has an absolutely brilliant bouquet.
On the palate the first thing that speaks to me is the amazingly round and dense texture. The wine has great acidity and sharpness that shows up after the initial creamy and thick texture. I get intense and mouthwatering flavors of yellow apple, tangerine, lemon-lime, honey dew melon, honey suckle, cream, and just the slightest hint of toast. There is also great mineral and crushed rock notes that show up towards the finish that add to the complexity.
I'd like to mention the length and intensity of the finish of this wine. I'm not sure I've ever had a white wine that has such an intense and long finish. The flavors just keep exploding and unfolding on the finish for minutes after the initial sip. It's really no wonder that this wine gets such amazing press year after year.
Simply the best Sauvignon Blanc on the planet. 97 Points
