Calcu Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Stinky with sulphur upon opening. Give this some air to allow for it to blow off and you’ll find fine aromas of green chilies, nettles, asparagus and chalky soil notes layered in with grapefruit rind and dried orange peel. Modestly scaled though with great snap on the palate, this unleashes bright, juicy citrus, tart nectarine and ripe pineapple flavors with great energy. It’s not a terribly complex wine but it does gain subtle bitter and herbal nuances on the backend before the great acids return on the long, juicy and refreshing grapefruit toned finish. 88pts
