Lot 149 | 2020 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc 750ml

$25/bottle under the original label

A very Bordelais-style Sauvignon Blanc, this wine combines barrel-fermented and tank-fermented lots to produce a zesty bouquet and rich mid-palate weight while still maintaining the mouthwatering freshness we adore in Sauvignon Blanc. $25/bottle at the winery, yours for just $13/bottle. Its fabulous.

Zesty and complex bouquet with melon and apple notes riding grapefruit/gooseberry zest and honeysuckle blossom in a beautifully uplifted, bright and effusive bouquet. The 15% new French oak and lees stirring give the wine nice weight and texture on entry with richer white fruit profiles (honeyed pear and apple) and toasted nut notes. Pretty acidity provides a wonderful mineral lift that carries the wine to a long, lingering, blossomy finish.
