Hourglass Estate Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

$39.99

Rare new Sauvignon Blanc from Hourglass.  Highly recommended The 2019 Hourglass is no ordinary California Sauvignon Blanc; it is more akin to a white Bordeaux with its texture, integrated, expressive fruit, and dry, limestone accent.   Primary aromas of Honeydew melon, Meyer lemon zest and peach blossom with bright notes of Granny Smith apple, spearmint and fresh cut hay. On the palate, limeade, lemon meringue and Pippin apple intertwine with notes of brioche, honey and chamomile flowers. The addition of 5% Semillon, along with judicious barrel fermentation and frequent lees stirring, create beautiful texture and depth, with bright acidity and chalky minerality providing precision and balance on the long, lively finish.

The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is bright and crisp. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint, orchard fruit and tomato leaf are nicely delineated. The Sauvignon is done in equal parts tank and oak, with an approach that favors energy over volume. The bright, saline finish is so appealing. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2021)
