2015 Sauvignon Blanc
- 750 ml
The aroma of this brilliant green-straw-colored wine is reminiscent of citrus, lemon-lime, white peach, pear, apples and lemon grass. The flavors are nicely balanced with lemon, lime, melon and green apple. With great body, the wine has good acidity with an excellent clean finish. There is a great balance of fruit and brightness.

The winter was one of the driest on record, although we did receive 75% of normal precipitation. The relatively dry, warm winter promoted early bud break and a cool spring supported a long flowering period. The balance of the season was moderate to warm. The crop was very light, with small clusters of small concentrated berries, and the fruit ripened about two weeks early in most cases.
