External Reviews for Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc
Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - International Wine Cellar/ Bright straw. Musky citrus pith and herbal aromas, with a subtle floral quality gaining strength with air. Pliant orange and pear flavors become drier with air, picking up dusty mineral and dried herb qualities. The orange note lingers on the broad, persistent finish.
Bargain Buzz/ Very grassy and citrusy on the nose; deliciously fruity, crisp and refreshing with stone fruit and mineral undercurrents. For lovers of very grassy, New Zealand style.
120 Sauvignon Blanc - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ Exhibits and attractive bouquet of spring flowers, citrus, and lemon-lime followed by a crisp, refreshing wine with a clean finish.
Wines of the Month/ From the cool climate of Casablanca Valley comes this good-value varietal example. Displays gentle elderflower and ripe gooseberry fruit. Elegant with a long, crisp finish.
WineMaker's Notes: "Nuances of citrus fruit and white peach, supported by a zesty acidity and smooth texture that lingers on the palate"
A Chile Reception/ Clear gold in appearance, this wine displayed intense New World Sauvignon Blanc characteristics of green grass, lemon-citrus and gooseberry aromas. Flavors were refreshing green apple and rich pear, with finishing flavors of delicate citrus and balanced spice. Pair this with seared sea scallops or a fried shrimp po'boy.
