|ORANGE SAUVIGNON BLANC 2020 Unfiltered, Lake County
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
|NEW in Vintages. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc has a potentially hazy light orange-yellow colour. I let the bottle sit undisturbed for several days before gently removing the crown capsule, pouring 1.5 ounces and the blowing in some inert Private Preserve gas (CO2 and N2) and finally pushing in a clean cork. The nose is quite complex with honeyed, browning, cider apple notes all on top of slightly oxidized orange marmalade fruit. It seems just off dry on the palate and yet quite smooth and well structured. It has an agreeable, spicy, honeyed, orange citrus and apple cider flavours with a lingering, bright, very faintly bitter, dried apricot finish. I then shook the bottle and found that it had a tad more mouthfeel with some pumpkin when retasted. I prefer it unshaken. Now owned/produced by Delicato Family Vineyards.

|TASTING NOTE: Gian-Carla \"Gia\" Coppola is a film director, screenwriter, and granddaughter to Francis Ford Coppola, who is a legend in both wine and film. This wine is made by giving Sauvignon Blanc extended skin contact, which imparts extra colour along with layers of apricot marmalade, honey, white tea and kumquat. Pair with curry dishes, kimchi or sushi.
