Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The elegant and lively 2019 Sauvignon Blanc opens with a feast of ambrosial lemon curd, elderflower, bosc pear flesh, and apricots aromas. There is also delightful array of toasty brioche, coconut, and orange blossom notes reveling amongst the upper register. A beautifully bright acidity leads the entry with a nectar of citrusy key lime and grapefruit, followed nicely with pineapple, and honeydew melon flavors. The grand finish flourishes with pleasurable hints of marzipan, oyster shell, honeycrisp apple, fresh mint, and green tea.
This delightfully complex, structured white blends in 12% Sémillon and 3% Sauvignon Vert, fermenting in a majority of French oak, as well as stainless-steel tank and concrete egg. Seamless and supple, it explodes in lemon meringue, tangerine and a subtle hint of brioche, long on the finish in crushed rock and stone. VIRGINIE BOONE
