"A fresh grassy note adds an aromatic lemon verbena accent to the core of citrus flavors. Crisp finish. Drink now. 2,752 cases made. -MW " (WS)

"The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc shows the ripeness and intensity of the vintage in a style that emphasizes textural weight over energy. Overall, the 2015 is tasty, but also a touch flabby." (VM)

"Stonestreet consistently delivers complex, refreshing renditions of Sauvignon Blanc. Grassy on the nose, with an exotic tease of pea shoot, it seemingly vibrates on the palate with lemon, grapefruit and apricot flavors." (WE)

Winery Notes:
The Estate Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of several blocks planted at 900 ft. elevation. It displays everything one would expect from Sauvignon Blanc grown at altitude in rock-driven soils: exotic fruit character grounded by serious textural and structural components. Aromas of Meyer lemon and Thai basil flood the nose, with background notes of pear and lemon blossom to add intrigue. On the palate, the depth typical of 2015 is on full display, with a broad, rich texture counterbalanced by razor acidity and superb length bolstered by flavors of fennel and lemon zest.
