Editorial Reviews for Kunde Estate Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Valley Magnolia Lane
This offers up a lovely nose of well-integrated hints of nettles, herbs, and earth adding complexity to the pineapple and grapefruit tones. Rich and slightly viscous in the mouth yet the acids offer great cut keeping everything in balance. The palate is full of grapefruit and orange toned fruit with a touch of mineral cut and sweet, floral inner mouth perfume. This has good length and comes off as a slightly structured, rigid style of Sauvignon Blanc at this youthful stage. 90pts
External Reviews for Kunde Estate Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Valley Magnolia Lane
Juicy peach, lime, mango and mouthwatering lemonade flavors are ripe and well-balanced, with the core of fruit flavors getting stronger on the finish. Drink now.
Very dry, crisp, tart and lemony. This is about as good as this style of Sauvignon Blanc gets in California. The addition of a small amount of Sémillon and Viognier enrichens but does not interfere with the varietal's refreshing personality.
Abundant flavors such as grapefruit and ripe peach emerge from this nuanced and versatile California Sauvignon Blanc.
Tart lemon, grapefruit, green apple and melon flavors stay crisp, intense and lively through the finish. Food would soften the edges. Drink now.
Tangy lemon-lime flavors are focused and direct, with a terrific refreshing acidity and hints of spice and herbs to keep this light on its feet.
