October 30, 2019 - Similar impressions to the previous bottles we've consumed. If anything, this wine now deserves more bottle aging.
October 13, 2019 - So much better than the last try a few months ago. I stood this up my last bottle for about a month and after popping and placing back in the refrigerator, let a week go by to slow ox. The fiz is gone and wine is in a great place right now. Tons of tropical fruit with lemon/lime notes. Very enjoyable.
October 9, 2019 - Oh baby! This is amazing S B. We have long adored the wines coming from the a Grey Stack vineyard. This is something special and above the norm. Russell continues to excel with this fruit.
September 28, 2019 - Cloudy tropical goodness. Beautiful and refreshing flavors offered on a lip-smacking delivery. Soft and round on the palate with just the right amount of acidity to lift this fine effort. Just a pleasure to drink and enjoy. Don't limit this to the summer months as it has the character and depth to enjoy year round.
July 18, 2019 - Same as previous note, tremendous fruit concentration, maybe a tad more then the last. Need to order more.
June 8, 2019 - This is an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. tropical fruit on the nose. The palate starts out with guava and then spreads throughout the mouth with strong pear and apple. there is acid for balance, principally at the back of the palate.
I had this first a few months ago when Russel Bevan was in NY. It was great then so we ordered six and it is just as good now as it was that first night. Maybe the best Sauvignon Blanc I ever had. No cat pee (why would anyone like that?). No grassy weedyness. No negative characteristics. Give it an extra point because it's a good white wine choice that's not chard and is not sweet.
May 27, 2019 - Delicious and then some. Great tropical fruit, pineapple, and nice sine of acid, a bit of minerality and sweetness. Cloudy appearance that typifies this wine.
May 11, 2019 - An impressive array of tropical fruit; pineapple, mango, strawberry really stood out individually, they managed to extract a tremendous amount of flavor.
It's unfiltered and perhaps the cloudiest white wine I've ever had.
May 5, 2019 - Delicious SB from Bevan. Cloudy and murky with lovely tropical notes. Smooth and delicious with no sharp edges. A perfect wine for the deck or patio. "Diamonds" in the bottom of the bottle. (Tartrates).
April 26, 2019 - Pineapple, citrus, lime comes in on both the nose and pallet. A good SB, but for sure needs a little air. I attempted to pop-and-pour and it was very rough and unbalanced. Looks unfiltered, and struggled to find any balance throughout the evening. Long finish. Didn't think too seriously about it after the first couple glasses. Decent, but not knock your socks off.
