TASTING NOTE: This is a barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc sourced from younger vines with oak aging in mostly neutral barrels ... expressive gooseberry, grapefruit, herbs and spice. There is freshness on the palate and notes of grapefruit, lemon, tropical fruits, minerals and integrated spice notes. Will be drinking perfectly when released this spring.
