Neal Family Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Howell Mountain 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense aromas include pure Sauvignon Blanc fruit, citrus, floral blossoms and the hint of pineapple, stone fruit and tropical fruits. First impressions in the mouth are of citrus: Meyer lemon, lime and grapefruit. After the initial impact more of the tropical flavors appear, including peach, passion fruit and pineapple. The finish has a slight creamy texture, a bit more weight and character from the yeast contact than last year, and a long, pleasant finish. 880 cases produced.
