Sweet citrus tones and a slightly buttery note great the nose. This has a distinct Fruitstripes gum note on the nose, combining orchard and tropical fruit characters. Soft and round in the mouth with a milky creaminess upfront and enough acidity to keep things fresh while highlighting the deep, slightly spicy, slightly cheesy coconut tinged tropical fruit rich palate. Could be a little longer but very good in this style 91pts

Beautiful light color. Lemon and lime on the nose but I also got some va which wasn't so pleasant. Nice and fruity with a touch of sweetness on the palate. There's a touch of banana, but this is a nice pleasing wine to drink outdoors.

Watery pale in glass. Inviting bouquet of florals, honeysuckle specifically, and lemon zest. Crisp and bountiful flavors of apricot, lemon, mineral and florals, almost like a light tea. Dry and moderately complex. Well balanced. Lingering finish. Recommended. - Schreiner's Winers "Springtime Sauvignon Blanc" Tasting 3/12/10

A little sweet for my taste. Too much honey. Not in the style of Sancerre wines or New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs.

Winemaker's Notes:

This Sauvignon Blanc seamlessly combines lush, mouth-filling fruit with refreshing acidity. The aromas highlight bright citrus notes of lemon zest, grapefruit and kaffir lime, underscored by subtle hints of pear and dried apricot. Echoing the aromatics, the palate reveals vibrant citrus layers complemented by more subdued tropical elements of banana, coconut and lychee.
