St. Supery Sauvignon Blanc 2018
This radiant Sauvignon Blanc presents with pale straw yellow with hints of green hues. Pristine estate fruit is showcased on the nose, where this wine gives generously of pink grapefruit and lime citrus aromas with a subtle thread of green guava and fennel. In the cellar, minimal intervention yields a vivid expression of freshness on the palate with flavors of grapefruit and lime zest zinging through the finish to create a wine of agility, brightness, and devotion to its essence.
"This fine winery has made Sauvignon Blanc a specialty. A classic rendition, this stunning wine is elegant, intricate, and delicious with a long finish." -95pts, Tasting Panel
"Michael Scholz and his team grow some of the best sauvignon blanc in Napa Valley at Dollarhide Ranch, St. Supéry’s estate in the eastern hills. The long, cool harvest season allowed the fruit for this wine to ripen into a brisk, gentle, mouthwatering flavor of green lime and agave. It’s the best vintage of the wine we’ve tasted, on par with some of the exceptional releases of the Dollarhide Estate Vineyard bottling (that one being a block selection that sees some oak; this one is fermented entirely in stainless steel). Well worth buying by the case, this is a delicious white for ceviche, spicy Thai prawns, or any roast fish. Best Buy." -93pts, Wine and Spirits
