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

Light straw yellow color. Crisp, medium body with a refreshing mouthfell. Slightly dry with touches of citrus fruit and hints of mineral and herb. Nice lasting finish.

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.

Light, fresh citrus and melon flavors. A bit of mild, green fruit. Crisp and refreshing.

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

Apple blossom, pear and tangerine flavors are at the core of this wine, with a nice acidity to give the flavors plenty of intensity and freshness. Drink now. -MW Wine Spectator. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from California in USA. 2011 Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc 375ml

Drifting toward the lean, grassier side of the varietal spectrum, this wine comes across as lighter than recent Duckhorn efforts yet seems a tad better off because of it. Style and size fit nicely together and the wines early juice on the palate is ... Connoisseurs Guide. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from California in USA. 2011 Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc 375ml

With a vibrant acidity that is balanced by toasted oak and a rich mouthfeel, this wine has a nose that expresses notes of ripe melon, Meyer lemon, kiwi and pineapple, along with scents of jasmine, honey, thyme and a hint of spice. Tropical and citrus notes are found on the palate, as well as grapefruit, apricot, lemon grass, papaya and pineapple linger on the finish.

The aromas are fresh and enticing with bright citrus layers supported by subtle undertones of papaya and green mango. On the palate, the tropical notes come to the forefront with rich, lush layers of guava, passion fruit and lychee, as well as hints of herbs and lemon zest.
