2017 Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc$28.00James Suckling 94: Nicely defined, grassy lemon-pith aromas here with a gently flinty edge and dried mangoes. The palate has composed, long, fresh and focused fruit with elegance and concentration nicely pared together. Drink now. Screw cap.
2018 Brown Estate ‘Betelgeuse’ Sauvignon Blanc$25.00Tasting Notes Tropical fruit notes delight the nose, commingled with subtle citrus, fever grass, and lemon verbena. Night blooming jasmine and honeysuckle are shadowed by stone fruit, lychee, and frankincense. Palate delights with a cascade of vibrant pineapple and luxurious guava, finishing with delicate rosewater and effervescent bergamot.
2016 Rudd Sauvignon Blanc$89.99Wine Advocate 94: Composed of 83% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sauvignon Gris and 7% Sémillon fermented 17% in new oak, 48% in neutral oak and 35% in concrete, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Mt. Veeder has quite an earthy/mineral nose to begin, featuring notes of wet pebbles, chalk dust and damp moss over a core of ripe peaches, lemon curd and dried herbs. The medium to full-bodied palate has great vivacity and depth, sporting a beautifully chewy phenolic texture and rasping backbone of acidity to support the intense citrus and herbal flavors, finishing on a lingering chalky note. Still very youthful, forget it for a year or two and drink it over the next 10-12 years+.
