2007 Creekside Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

We opened a very fine bottle of 2007 Creekside Reserve Sauvignon Blanc this evening. Acidity is still firm, balancing a rich palate of honey and herbs, with vanilla and a lightly nutty oxidative note. I recall that in its youth, the wine was rich and ripe, but the oak was edgy and resinous. It is now well on its way towards integration.

While it is certainly reminiscent of Graves, it remains its own unique expression of Niagara. And I have one more bottle for a special occasion down the road!
