Tangy and very fragrant, with gooseberry, grass, grapefruit-lime and stone nuances. Vivid citrus acidity and graphite minerality shape an intense finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Aromas and flavors of pineapple and grapefruit are complicated by a more tropical element and a whiff of fresh herbs. Supple, sweet and generous, with just enough acidity to frame and lift the concentrated fruit flavors. A round style of sauvignon blanc with immediate sex appeal.
Very pale color. Musky aromas of lemon, melon, orange pith and pepper. Supple and juicy, with moderate intensity to the lemon, herb and white pepper flavors. Finishes with moderate length. Not quite as bracing or firm as the '06 but easy to drink.
The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is a workmanlike wine, typically herbaceous on the nose with a sharp, lime-tinged palate, though again abrupt on the finish.
Good pale yellow. Textbook sauvignon aromas of lemon, white grapefruit and peppery spices. The juicy, bracing white grapefruit, gooseberry, mint and floral flavors convey an impression of energy without coming off as austere. Nicely perfumed and penetrating in the mouth and long on the aftertaste, with lingering notes of quinine, passion fruit and pepper.
Spy Valley's Riesling and Gewürz have consistently scored well, so it is nice to see the Sauvignon finally reach this level of quality. It's crisp and well-structured, with grassy, herbal notes to the fig and grapefruit flavors, and has an authoritative, rich finish.
Fragrant and lithe, with a bright beam of lime juice, baby powder and crushed stone. Grapefruit and tangy gooseberry tones accent the concentrated finish. Drink now through 2007.
