External Reviews for Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc
Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2010 - 90 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Medalla Real was sourced from Leyda fruit, a region establishing a big reputation for this varietal and it shows. A splendid bouquet of fresh cut grass, jasmine, baking spices, and grapefruit set the stage for a medium-bodied, ripe, concentrated, spicy Sauvignon with excellent balance and length.
Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2009 - 89 Points, eRobertParker.com/ Light straw; aromas of minerals, passion fruit, and citrus; crisp, ripe, savory flavors.
Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2011 - 90 points, International Wine Cellar/ Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of candied citrus peel, green apple and jasmine, with a spicy accent gaining with air. Bright and sharply focused but silky too, offering tangy lime and orange flavors. Closes with very good cling, focus and length, leaving spice and floral notes behind.
Sauvignon Blanc Reserva 2010 - 87 points, Wine Advocate/ Santa Rita’s 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Reserva was fermented and raised in stainless steel. Aromas of herbs, baking spices, spring flowers, and citrus lead to a medium-bodied, balanced, savory Sauvignon that is a very good value meant for drinking over the next 12-18 months.
/ Light yellow. Smoky apple, lime and herbal aromas offer good complexity. The brisk citrus and orchard fruit flavors gain weight on the close, finishing with a jolt of succulent herbs.
Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - 87 Points & Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast/
/ When first poured, this sauvignon blanc is all stony flavor. Then, with air, oxygen extracts a sweet density of alcohol and ripeness, citric and green chile flavors emerging with vibrant acidity. It’s a big white for scallops in a creamy sauce.
