I’ve had this one over many different vintages and it is consistently good. Pale in color with a mild grassy nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some lovely rich grassy notes along with some nice citrus. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice crisp lively acidity. This is a varietal food friendly sauv blanc. I love sauv blancs. One of my fav whites these days. I would give it an 88 or so …
