THIS. Tight and green fig, tight citrus, medicinal herbs, 75/25 sauv / sem. Unfined and unfiltered, one third savvy whole cluster pressed and time in neutral French oak. Hay, lemon thistle, lees-lined palate, white peach fuzz textures the finish. Incredible texture, snap of citrus pith and oyster shells on the finish. Vibrant piercing acidity. Stunner now, will age impressively. 9.2 TA, 3.0 pH
Score: 92 points -- Anthony Gismondi, March 2017
77% Sauvignon Blanc + 23% Semillon. 6 acres planted in 1999 on dry river bed (gravel) in Oliver. Raised in neutral French oak for 6 months. Gently filtered.
Focused and almost lithe both on the nose and palate. 2016 gave us higher acidity than 2015 with a leaner profile over all. Citrus pith, melon, hay, lemon verbena. Bright, fresh and long. Bottles un-fined and un-filtered this is slightly cloudy. Now - 2020?
