Pale color. Inviting bouquet on the nose. Hints of apple, peach, apricot, melon herbs and minerals, but a tad sour. Highly acidic. Light body. Just fair for me. - Schreiner's Winers "Springtime Sauvignon Blanc" Tasting 3/12/10
Notes of kiwi and lime on the nose and palate (had just a taste at the tasting)

External Reviews for Casa Lapostolle Sauv Bl
Light yellow. Intriguingly perfumed aromas of grapefruit, lemon thyme, licorice and yellow rose. Very fresh, offering palate-coating citrus and orchard fruit flavors, with ample flesh and chewy texture. Finishes with good precision and lingering smokiness. This is a superb value, with great complexity for the money.
Plump and forward, with tasty grapefruit and lemon verbena notes that stay fresh on the finish. Drink now.
Green-gold color. Smoky peach and yellow plum on the nose, with a subtle lemon note adding energy. Fleshy and a touch sweet, with deep orchard fruit and melon flavors and firmer orange and lemon pith qualities. Finishes with good breadth and lingering citrus character.
Metallic golden color. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Ripe citrus, brown spice. Clean ripe citrusy aromas show a smoky note that follows through well on the palate. Brown spices linger on the finish. Ripe, straightforward style.
Cool lemon rind, spice and fresh herb aromas. Supple, creamy, ripe and satisfying...
A piercing grapefruit aroma, the hallmark of Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc, is strong here, and there's a certain stony peachiness and some passion fruit as well. There's also a touch of green pepper and asparagus at the flavor core, and then some vanilla at the end. If that sounds like a lots to ponder, it is - probably too much, given the wine.
