    May 19, 2014 - Finally! A wine made with Sauvignon Blanc that amazed me. This is a varietal I have never made friends with at all. But this wine has opened my eyes. Vines are embedded in Silex. Pours like cold spring water mixed with some simple syrup. There is a purity in its nose- a wine of complexity but singular purpose. Kaffir lime, and bright tart pink lady apple, river rock wet by the river bed, some white stones, and a faint haunting of Turkish apricot. No hay, under ripe grassiness or green straw. None of that. This wine reminds me of a a greyhound of a wine, but with a languid gait and dressed in pretty hair accessories . And for under 22.00 it's a humdinger of a value. Viva La France!

    February 7, 2014 - Beautiful bouquet with yellow fruits and minerals. On the palate tart apple and lime, good oak and bitterness. A full bodied wine.
