|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine Review Online
Among the many things the Duckhorn team excels at, its Sauvignon Blanc is one of my longtime favorites. It’s one of the most complex Sauvignons made in the Napa Valley and this vintage is no exception. Showing scents of grapefruit and white peach, it is exquisitely balanced and has impressive length on the palate.
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is a little youthfully closed to begin, revealing with coaxing fragrant lime blossom, yuzu and grapefruit scents plus hints of wet pebbles and mown grass. Medium-bodied, the palate has plenty of citrusy zest on offer with a racy backbone and chalky finish.
Bright citrus, lemon curd, and some honeysuckle notes emerge from the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, which is medium-bodied, supple, and straightforward.
Blended with 15% Sémillon, this is a large-production white that is earthy and sharply high-toned in grapefruit, guava and flint. Plenty of acidity boosts the midpalate of concentration and richness, finding balance in the end.
Fresh citrus and Asian pear flavors are clean and bright, set on a light frame. A touch of apricot emerges on the finish. Drink now. 45,700 cases made. - MW
