Review from original list creator: "A little candied on the nose, and ripe with peachy aromas layered over a base of softly floral framed citrus fruits and a hint of honeydew with a gentle suggestion of vanilla adding detail. Fairly large scaled in the mouth, and on the softer side of the spectrum, this does not lack for acid but does have a bit of a creamy feel in the mouth. The flavors show both complexity and subtlety with a vein of vanilla well woven through the fabric of citrus fruit, melon and very fine herbal notes with a hint of green fennel seed emerging on the backend. Soft and gentle on the finish, though with good persistence and a finale that shows some peach pit and a hint of almost salty minerality. This is not my style of Sauvignon Blanc but in its style it is quite good. 89pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
