A wildly complex array of aromas and flavors, almost all from the tropical persuasion, the warmth of 2022 is demonstrated fully in this Sauvignon Blanc dominated white blend. Golden hued with a drop of straw, the aromatics lay a smack of lemon juice, passion fruit, and ripe lychee into your senses that intersect with guava and vanilla flower to make for a Tahitian tiki drink blend of aromas. A semblance of herbaceous rears its head in a transcendent form of key lime and kiwi that at least helps identify the wine as Sauvignon Blanc. Flavors open with pointed lime pith shavings with a squeeze of meyer lemon and granny smith apple, a sharpness overcome by rich notes of poached Asian pear and pineapple syrup. The richness of flavors, coupled with a moderate and supporting acidity make for a saline combination that translates into a delicious finish of salted caramel and limoncello.
