On the nose, lemon peel, wet stone, toast, and a little straw along with subtle bright apple. Apple, pear, and slate on the palate. Nice acidity. Medium bodied. Well balanced Sauv Blanc...a touch too much ripe fruit on the finish...wish it was a little cleaner. Have to think it went through malo?
Went very well with a red chicken curry dish. This is still after all this time my favorite SB. It's not my favorite varietal but I like this wine. No need to wait on this vintage...just pop and enjoy.
A Mostly French Wednesday Afternooner (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Light gold color. Drank 2 glasses over 90 minutes plus. This was certainly the best example of this wine i've had to date. Really an eye opener with amazing depth and texture on the palate. But everything comes together here, from the captivating nose with earthy grip up front along with citrus, white peach, butter, and mineral to the round and rich palate with peach, citrus, lychee and earth wrapped around a mineral finish with tangy acidity. Probably about as good as domestic SB can get.
