Eisele Vineyard 2019 Sauvignon Blanc

146.00

Our winemaking team notes: “At first the nose expresses subtle scents of white flowers, hawthorn blossom, and honeysuckle. A gentle swirling unlocks incredibly intense notes of white peaches, peppery grapefruit, and mandarin zest, with a hint of candied Meyer lemon. This is an even more complex and precise Sauvignon Blanc than its earlier versions. The palate is fresh, suave, and beautifully delineated. Tension and minerality carry through a long and savory finish. A new benchmark for the estate.”

Description

Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine from the Eisele Vineyard. The parcels are located on the Eastern side of the property, where the hills provide ideal protection from the afternoon sun, preserving the freshness and energy of this wine. The blending of two Sauvignon Blanc clones: Sauvignon Musque with its slightly exotic flavors, and Sauvignon Blanc with a lean, gravely structure, produces a wine of great pleasure that speaks of the long warm summers and the dry cobbly soils. Starting with the 2013 vintage, extended elevage on the lees has added tension and aromatic complexity to this unique wine.

Robert Parker: 96/100
