Spottswoode Napa County Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Ratings on Delectable

Isaac Pirolo Delectable Pro

Spottswoode’s 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from both Napa (36%) and Sonoma (64%) and was released this week. Three different methods of fermentation are employed with most occurring in either French oak or stainless steel barrels but a small amount apportioned to concrete eggs. Noticeably perfumed and almost opulent in its intensity with layers of potent orange blossom, salted lime, ripe nectarine, and tangerine peel, with a distinctive mint oil that dances on the periphery. The vibrancy is dialed way up, but the lines are clean and the edges are smooth, ultimately yielding an extraordinary Sauvignon Blanc.

Big aromatic nose of grass and grapefruit. Mellows on the palate, but still lean with Bosc pears. Great cali example of an old world style.
