Frei Brothers Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Our Sauvignon Blanc grapes were whole-cluster pressed to maximize delicate flavors and preserve the naturally firm acidity. The juice was then settled before fermentation to create a softer, more elegant mouthfeel. Sur lie aging gave this wine layers of complexity that extend through the mid-palate and culminate in a refreshing finish. A small portion of the wine was aged in American oak to add layers of complexity after fermentation.
Editorial Reviews for Frei Brothers Sauvignon Blanc
A little candied on the nose, and ripe with peachy aromas layered over a base of softly floral framed citrus fruits and a hint of honeydew with a gentle suggestion of vanilla adding detail. Fairly large scaled in the mouth, and on the softer side of the spectrum, this does not lack for acid but does have a bit of a creamy feel in the mouth. The flavors show both complexity and subtlety with a vein of vanilla well woven through the fabric of citrus fruit, melon and very fine herbal notes with a hint of green fennel seed emerging on the backend. Soft and gentle on the finish, though with good persistence and a finale that shows some peach pit and a hint of almost salty minerality. This is not my style of Sauvignon Blanc but in its style it is quite good. 89pts
Has a very sharp tropical fruit nose with a touch of grass, semi medium body with bright acidity that calms after airing. Notes of melon, kiwi, and lemongrass. Great summertime white!
Four and a half glasses
not bad, a bit sweet
Good balance of sweetness, bitterness and acidity
Aromas or lemon curd and flowers along with cat pee, almost a slight brussels sprout tinge and more citrus. It's crisp and juicy with tart acid. Flavors of lemon and lime with some flinty minerality.
Eyes: Pale straw Mouth feel: Light bodied, dry, mint, guava and grapefruit notes. Nose: Grapefruit and Guava I enjoyed this. Great apperitivo, great with fish, salads, meatless pasta dishes
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Frei Brothers Sauvignon Blanc
The cool climate enables Frei Brothers to produce a Sauvignon Blanc that exhibits a crisp, mineral-like mouth feel. With citrus and cut grass aromas and a long yet clean finish.
This sauvignon is infused with sweet lime flavors, both of the zest and the pulp. It's clean and mouthwatering, with plenty of lift to match grilled mahi-mahi or other game fish.
