[ Home > Wattle Creek Sauvignon Blanc 2006 ]|
Streaks of elegant green spear the brilliant yellow colors, while vibrant exotic lemon and lime citrus aromas grace this wine. It is well balanced with a citrus and mineral mouth feel developing to a crisp, dry finish, exuding its classic Sauvignon Blanc character with uncommon depth of flavor, structure and length.
"Only 4% of this wine was barrel fermented in new oak. The majority was stainless-steel fermented. But that little bit of oak adds a subtle smoky richness to the brilliant fruit, which is a blast of tart gooseberries and Meyer lemons. Totally dry, with relatively low alcohol of only 13.3%, this is really great Sauvignon Blanc. — S.H. (12/15/2007)" -Rated 90, Wine Enthusiast
"Very much made in the leaner, slightly lemony style that seems to define the new, low-pH breed of California Sauvignon Blanc, this lively wine is brisk and alive with only faint suggestions of varietal herbs hiding behind its dominant themes of citrus and stones. Seafoods, rather than poultry, are its better companions, and it should keep well with age." -Rated 87, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wines
