Quintessa Illumination Sauvignon Blanc 2015

$46.99

New rare white from Quintessa! Intrigued with making a white wine from Quintessa, Agustin Huneeus planted a small plot of Sauvignon Blanc at the estate in 2002.  Illumination first  emanated from this vineyard, its rays penetrating the palates of sommeliers, friends and guests who requested it for their own cellars. He now shares this limited production wine with kindred spirits seeking illumination via wines that express their place of origin. Tasting Notes:  "The Illumination Sauvignon Blanc is aromatic with white peach, Meyer lemon and jasmine notes. Soft tropical fruit flavors lead to a lush mouth-feel with a clean finish enhanced by mineral notes." "Illumination is "America's finest Sauvignon Blanc", Robert Whitley

Clear pale yellow with medium intensity. Beautiful aroma, fresh peaches, apricot, light citrus, and clean wet grass. Very lively a slight creamy note develops. Lots of stone fruit and bright moderate acidity (7/10). Medium body with a smooth texture. Excellent structure and love the complexity. Keeps adding deeper white and tropical fruit notes as it opens up. White floral notes too like acacia on the nose. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2026.
