WINEMAKER NOTESSauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in the estate vineyards across a total of 47 vineyard blocks. Warm days and cool nights contribute to long, even ripening. Sauvignon Blanc vines are trellised with an interior tunnel to increase airflow so that the grapes do not overheat and retain freshness, aromatics and flavor.

Shy and clean on the nose, which offers up only mild grapefruit and lime. The feel is tight and stony, with pithy citrus and green apple flavors. Leans towards green and herbaceous on the finish, but never fully goes green while maintaining clarity and crispness.

Light straw and saline notes lead to a solid core of gooseberry, citrus and chive flavors. Drink now.

The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc La Gloria displays a fragrant nose of grapefruit, spring flowers, and baking spices. Fresh and lively in the glass with just a hint of sweetness, this savory effort is a very good value meant for drinking over the next 12andndash;18 months.

Das Markante am Bouquet dieses reintönigen Sauvignon Blanc ist seine ausgeprägte, sortentypische Aromatik: Grapefruit, Stachelbeeren, Minze, Lindenblüten, grünliche Noten, die uns an Avocado, Spargel und Gräser erinnern, entfalten sich im Glas. Der Auftakt im Gaumen ist intensiv und fruchtig (Melone, Zitrusfrüchte). Im weiteren Verlauf zeigen sich seine Komplexität und seine gehaltvolle Textur. Das Markenzeichen dieses Weissweins aus der kühlen Weinanbauregion Casablanca Valley ist sein grossartiges Zusammenspiel von fruchtiger Struktur und opulenter Textur. Das lange anhaltende Finale ist fruchtig und ausgewogen.

Fresh, crisp, and intense. Citrus and tropical fruits deliver a mouthwatering, tangy finish.
