In contrast to the 2001 this edition of the To Kalon Sauv Blanc has more ripe fruit, but it’s also bundled up a bit tighter. There’s a light, smoky wood tone on the nose with hints of peach, lime and lime zest. With air subtle floral, geranium petal, and almost saffron like notes emerge from the glass. On the palate this is rich and ripe with softer acids than the 2001 but still very vibrant. It’s got a youthful, taut linear feel to it with excellent intensity of flavor. On the backend a salty, mineral note emerges and gives this an almost margarita like quality with the blend of citrus fruit and that geranium, vegetal tone. This really needs time to show at its best. 92pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Immediately pressed as whole clusters to retain delicacy Used primarily the delicate free-run juice 100% barrel-fermented in 60-gallon French oak chateau barrels—35% new No malolactic fermentation to retain focused acidity Eleven months aging in French chateau oak barrels Bâtonnage (hand-stirring) during sur lie aging

Tasting Notes:

Pronounced tropical aromas are followed by waves of similarly rich flavors—pineapple, coconut, zesty lemon, a bit of mango and orange pekoe tea. Mouthcoatingly creamy with lively acidity, this is a vibrantly stylish wine that bespeaks a superlative vintage and the distinctive terroir of the famed To Kalon Vineyard.
