USA — California • $22.95 • 88.5/100

This is a benchmark California Sauvignon Blanc, mostly barrel fermented, and aged for five months in oak barriques. It is very pale straw in colour, with a nose suggesting white flowers, lemons, yellow apples, and a light nuance of cedary wood. Acidity is firm, alcohol is somewhat elevated, and the palate is slightly creamy, reflecting the lees stirring regime. Most of the herbal and grassy elements of Sauvignon have been ripened away, leaving just a little earthiness and depth. Overall very good. • Tasted 2017-03-18 • LCBO id#221887 • Find it at your nearest LCBOCONSTELLATION BRANDS INC. (Agent)
