Pale in color with a nice citrus and grassy nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice tart citrus notes, grapefruit and grassyness. This is a nice edgy bold sauv blanc that can hold up really well to spicy food. On the medium length finish the wine has some nice mouth grip with the citrus and minerality living on nicely in the mouth. It’s nice and dry! I would give it an 88+. This wine is in the general list and is my new goto for sauv blanc. Exactly what I enjoy! New bottle, new look, even bolder this year!
