An oh-so compelling "fume" style sauvignon blanc with such impressive breadth and depth! Really quite superb. Flinty,...

An excellent dry white to stand up to creamy pasta or chowder.

Yeasty and mineral aromas from the cork. In the glass, elegant lime, freshly cut grass, hay, and hints of tropical fruit aromas. Light-to-medium bodied and bone dry with bright acidity. Flavour profile consists of wet stone, asparagus, herbaceous, lime, and green pepper. Nicely balanced with a lengthy finish that is spicy, lemony and white flowers notes. Quite complex. Highly recommended for dry white wine lovers. Tasted Apr/2014.

Decent wine, but I have had much better for less than twenty bucks. It does not have the magic in it do deserve a 90, in my opinion.
