Not a bad sauvignon blanc from Chile. More citrus than grapefruit, some minerality, slightly spicy with a decent finish.

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

The Sauvignon Blanc is bright and attractive light yellow with hints of straw and green. An expressive nose of fresh citrus fruit on entry, followed by sweet hints of white flowers and delicate notes of lychee and fig. In the mouth its young and pleasant, with fresh acidity followed by a delicate sweetness and abundant citrus aromas that persist in the palate. Light and elegant.

Helles Gelb mit hellgrünen Reflexen. Reichhaltiges Bouquet mit Aromen von Zitrusfrüchten, weissen Früchten sowie Nektarinen mit Noten von Lychee. Ein Wein mit erfrischendem und vollem Geschmack und feiner Mineralität.

Ripe apple and herb flavors and accents of vanilla give this white a gentle appeal. It has just enough acidity for food. Drink now.

This round white offers ripe flavors of apples and melons, with spicy notes that hint of cinnamon and clove. Not a typical Sauvignon Blanc, lively enough to bring you back for another sip. Drink now.

Cool lemon rind, spice and fresh herb aromas. Supple, creamy, ripe and satisfying...

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.
