Kunde Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc 2009
The 2009 Kunde Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc is an exciting release for us. This is the first vintage to be made with our new clonal selections of Sauvignon Blanc, including the Musque clone. Our addition of Semillon adds some body to the blend, and a small bit of Viognier gives it a subtle floral note. Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc has always been a winner, but we love the new fragrant complexities created in the 2009 version, filled with aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, and just a hint of Mexican guava. It makes us think of outdoor entertaining, with prawns, summer squash, and eggplant on the grill.

Aromas of grass and bright citrus fruit. It has a crisp, bright acidity with loads of lemon and grapefruit. - Tasted at winery Feb 2011
External Reviews for Kunde Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc
This bottling by fine producer Kunde always shows a grassy, hay-like note to the citrus fruit flavors, so if that's your style, you'll like it. The wine itself is only lightly oaked, and feels crisp and clean in the mouth, as well as dry. The low alcohol is a pleasure. S.H. Intense lemon and Key lime flavors have terrific focus, wonderful acidity and pretty aromatics. Light-bodied and vividly refreshing. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. -MW ** SOLD OUT **
