According to Wine Enthusiast - The winery has made SB since 1982, blending in Sémillon and barrel-aging in new oak to craft a fuller style of the wine that’s well structured. In this vintage 16% Sémillon was used and barrel fermentation took place in 15% new oak. The result: a light, ethereal wine abundant in tropical aromas and flavors that’s crisp on the palate.
Tasting Notes - Both crisp and complex, this lovely Sauvignon Blanc displays enticing aromas of grapefruit, summer melon, lemongrass and lime zest with subtle hints of boxwood and Mandarin orange. Though it is crisp and refreshing from start to finish, there is a richness to the mid-palate that supports the vibrant fruit with a note of flinty minerality adding nuance and depth. 84% Sauvignon Blanc, 16% Sémillon. 13.5% ABV.
