W&S 93 WE 92 WS 90 - Oakville Sauvignon Blanc is celebrated for its ripe fruit, subtle minerality and rich texture, and this wine wonderfully expresses that Oakville personality. The fruit intensity of the 2012 is matched by mouthwatering acidity in a wine that weaves lemon and grapefruit citrus, melon fruit, herbal and verbena floral with lemongrass and an integrated touch of nutty oak character.
Description

Details

W&S 93 WE 92 WS 90 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - Grown at To-Kalon, where Mondavi planted what are now its oldest dry-farmed, head-pruned sauvignon vines in 1960, this is mostly from a younger planting on that site from the early 1990s. The wine barrel-fermented in older oak and aged ten months on the lees. So you’d expect a major oak presence and something creamy-rich. You get that, plus a persistence of nectarine and white peach flavor, creating a fascinating dynamic with the oak tannins, together enhancing the earthy character of the fruit.

92pts, The Tasting Panel - Lemon and Key lime ripe and tart with a juicy pineapple essence that rushes over the stone floor that lines the palate. Tarragon and clean, green herbs add character and rich texture and placates the high acidity. A wonderful vintage for an iconic wine.

According to Wine Enthusiast - This vintage of 92% Sauvignon Blanc and 8% Sémillon presents a savory study in herbal-laced lemon and melon, rich and ripe. Expressive and expansive, it combines balanced acidity with a dry finish, spicing things up with notes of lemongrass and almond. All fruit is sourced from the famed To Kalon Vineyard.

According to Wine Spectator - Crisp and vibrant lemon and grapefruit notes are balanced by a rich, spicy overtone that invokes flavors of coconut, marmalade and Key lime pie. Smooth and juicy, with a touch of passion fruit on the finish. Drink now. 92% Sauvignon Blanc & 8% Sémillon. 14.5% ABV.
