Fresh and crisp in style, with crunchy acidity supporting the chive, thyme and lemon zest notes. Bracing finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,315 cases made. -JMThe medium straw-colored 2008 Sauvignon Blanc delivers a perfume of citrus and passion fruit with some fresh herb notes in the background. It bears a resemblance to its first cousin, the 2008 Errazuriz Sauvignon Blanc, but without the same degree of concentration and depth. Nevertheless, it is a fine effort for drinking over the next 12-18 months.Light yellow. Pungent, impressively precise aromas of lime, grapefruit, herbs and smoky minerals. Deeper orchard fruits dominate the palate, with bitter citrus zest notes adding grip and slow-mounting minerality contributing a dry edge. The firm finish shows good grip and cut. On the austere side and sure to please those who like their white wines fat-free.
