The Hess Collection Sauvignon Blanc Lake County Small Block Series 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Lake County Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of Clone 1 and Musque clone. In order to preserve the crisp acidity and expressive aromatics, some lots were fermented in stainless steel tanks, while others were fermented in neutral oak barrels to lend a pleasant weight to the mid-palate. Hess Lake County Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of white peach, pineapple and melon which are also noticeable on the palate with the pleasant additions of the more traditional varietal characters of gooseberry and lemongrass. This wines displays a very refreshing acidity and a good length. Enjoy as an aperitif or with chicken in a lemon-caper sauce.

Another underrated maker. Their single vineyard collection shines. Vibrant and filled with lemongrass nose. Minerality, wet poolside stone, white grapefruit. Sour tropical fruits and green bamboo with tons of acidity. Pair with ice cold shellfish and get yumming.

Very light sauvignon blanc with a citrus-like nose. Taste consists of mix of melon and lemon. Great wine to enjoy right out of the fridge on a hot summer day.

85 points - Winecentric Hess Sauvignon Blanc Lake County The color of watered-down apple juice. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit, gooseberry, grass and citrus. Hints of melon on the palate with sharp acidity on the short finish. Simple with a good mouthfeel but still showing some heat.
