Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc California 2016

Member Review by ApelsecS:

It changes a lot, depending on temperature - when warm, it's earthy grapefruit with wide melon body... almost like "Love Is" bubblegum... and feels crispy and more lemony when cooled. So you can balance it up to you. Awesome!

Ripe with a little grassiness and a little grape fruit and a smooth finish but nothing really grabbed me.

Not the body of previous vintages, though the aromatics are still very good. Lemongrass, apple, a touch of stone fruit and citrus. The juice nips at the throat and finishes with an acidic, juicy and mouthwatering finish. Drink last year. Paul 87 points

Crisp fruity notes of pear and grapefruit. Dry finish. No need to pair with food, quite pleasant to just sip while relaxing at the end of a long day.

This Joel Gott has notes of lemon and lime on the nose. In the mouth there are copious amounts lemon zest and lime that later open up into slight honey notes. This wine tastes like it has been oaked, however it is 100% stainless. A very chardonnay-like, strong, tangy finish, Good for a California Sauv Blanc, which are not my favorite.

    Very nice napa sauvignon blanc with some white grapefruit, melon and citrus. Excellent for sipping on the deck on a hot Carolina afternoon.

    CaliforniaThe 2016 Joel Gott California Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of mango, pineapple and melon with soft floral notes. On the palate, the wine opens with bright, tropical flavors, followed by crisp, refreshing acidity and a long, clean, balanced finish.Combining fruit from throughout the state-Napa, Sonoma, Santa Barbara, Monterey, Lake County, and Lodi--creates a balanced, food-friendly wine. To preserve the wine's fruit and acidity, it receives a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks, a small percentage of which are smaller stainless-steel drums that give the wine added texture and roundness from sur lie aging.Enjoy Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc over the next 3-4 years with salmon, oysters, grilled vegetables, halibut, crab, chicken, Asian cuisine, and sushi.

    Another beauty that would work exquisitely with Ahi burgers is the 2007 Sauvignon Blanc. It offers plenty of fig, flint, honeyed grapefruit, and lemon zest characteristics in a medium-bodied, crisp personality. Enjoy it over the next year.

    So pale in the glass you're almost blown away by the unctuous intensity of the juice. Full on the palate with flavors of pineapple, apricot, and pear preserve. Finishes with nice touches of cut grass and alfalfa, with an enlivening though not overbearing acidity.
