This Sauvignon Blanc jumps out of the glass with pink grapefruit, Asian pear, white peach, lemon oil, lime leaf, and lemongrass aromatics. The palate confirms the nose and
is extremely bright and tense, showing great balance. Bright guava, juicy stone fruit, and hints of pineapple pair with a grapefruit acidity that lead to a long finish. Frequent lees bâtonnage adds a level of creaminess and more layers of complexity.
Highly acclaimed and considered one of the “Super Sauvignons” (a term coined by wine writer Karen MacNeil, author of the Wine Bible) to describe a rare class of wines considered to be among the world’s utmost expressions of this noble grape), Spottswoode’s exceptional, classically styled Sauvignon Blanc has been produced since 1984.
