This is fresh yet dense with layers of beautiful fruit that deliver gorgeous sliced lemons and green apples. Medium to full body. Nice phenolic tension that gives it a creamy texture. Drink now.
The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Illumination comes from the cooler Coombsville and Bennet Valley AVAs, with a bit from the Quintessa estate. Made up of 53% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sauvignon Musqué clone and 7% Sémillon, it springs from the glass with vibrant lemon curd, white peaches, orange blossom and lime leaves scents with hints of wild thyme, chalk dust and yuzu zest. Medium-bodied and wonderfully elegant, it delivers vivacious citrus and gentle herbs layers with a racy backbone and long mineral-laced finish.
Well integrated with a subtle fist of power, this wine is fleshy and fruit forward in apple and lime with a stony mineral edge. A twinge of fresh grapefruit flavor brightens the glass and adds to the overall complexity.
