Spring Mountain Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Spring Mountain District 2009
First produced in 1993, Spring Mountain Sauvignon Blanc is reminiscent of fine White Graves. The grapes for this wine come from our Miravalle property, originally planted by Tiburcio Parrott in 1885. The current planting features budwood from Spottswoode Winery planted in the early 1980s. Miravalle is one of the warmest areas on the estate, which ensures fully ripened grapes. Aging in 50% new French oak adds a toasty vanilla richness along with a backbone that enables this wine to develop complexity for several years after its original release.
May have been flawed. Barnyard nose, overwhelming orange-rind on the palate. Undrinkable
Great on the nose with crisp green apple, fig. Unpaired very tart with apple and some citrus, pineapple, extremely tart. Paired with appetizer and dessert. With an asparagus appetizer, great . . . apple, citrus, apricot. Later with pecan pie, apple, tangy citrus, fig, and spice. Very enjoyable.
Citrus, butter; nice light; bought 3 bottles.
