SPOTTSWOODE 2013 SAUVIGNON BLANC SONOMA / NAPA COUNTIES 750mL

Last year we got a 2fer on Spottswoode! Not only did their 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon receive 100 points from esteemed wine critic Robert Parker, but we also finally received enough Sauvignon Blanc to feature them on our own Top Wine list for 2013! This year's release of the Sauvignon Blanc just landed, and when we cracked open a bottle, we think this may be even better than last year's release!

Grapes from Hyde, Inkgrade, Stagecoach, and a handful of other carefully-selected vineyards join Spottswoode Estate fruit in the composition of this wine, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Musque. Spottswoode's method of fermentation—using a combination of small stainless barrels, French oak and concrete, egg-shaped cuves—means that they manage up to 100 individual fermentations each year. This technique results in a complex, rich, and vibrant wine that stands well on its own, pairs beautifully with food, and is further enhanced with a bit of cellaring.

The 2013 is textured and aromatic, backed up by a wonderful, vibrant acidity. The nose exudes lime zest and lemon pith, along with characters of ripe peach, honeydew melon, and grapefruit, with a touch of vanillin and pear. The palate is long with hints of meringue and brioche, with citrus components in the finish. A beautifully balanced and lovely wine!
