Quintessa Illumination Sauvignon Blanc 2017

$49.99

rare white from Quintessa                             New rare white from Quintessa! 93 Points Wine Enthusiast: "Sublime texture imprints this delightful, serious wine, floral in gardenia aromas and orange blossom. A bright, lengthy acidity supports mouthwatering flavors of Meyer lemon, tangerine and wild Tahitian vanilla, combining effortlessly on the palate to wow and refresh." 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. "Illumination is "America's finest Sauvignon Blanc", Robert Whitley
