Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc

2015 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc

Wine Enthusiast Advance Buying Guide, Virginie Boone

Grapes are meticulously sourced from a range of sites, including Sonoma Mountain and Knights Valley on the Sonoma side, and Spottswoode estate, Hyde and Ink Grade from Napa. Opening with the aromas of grassy knoll, it develops in the glass to show juicy, fresh acidity and well-defined flavors of apricot and wet stone. Young and bright, the acidity is tenacious and supportive, making way for a final lilt of creaminess on the finish. (February 2017)

The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is bright and finely sculpted, with an attractive range of citrus, mint and white flower notes. Ordinarily I would suggest drinking the Sauvignon Blanc over the next few years, but I tasted a bottle of the 2011 on my recent visit, and was still in fine shape. (December 2016)
