Galerie Naissance Sauvignon Blanc 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine EnthusiastBeautifully balanced and elegant, this is made by one of the winemakers at Cardinale and inspired by the Loire Valley. It offers equal parts fruit, weight and minerality, tasting of fresh-squeezed lime and wet stone, with a layering of viscous vanilla. Medium-sized in terms of texture, it dances on the palate, refreshing throughout.
Wine AdvocateThere are just over 3,100 cases of the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Naissance, a lovely, crisp, fresh Sauvignon Blanc with an affinity to a Loire Valley Fumé Blanc. Loads of honeysuckle, melony and tropical fruit jump from the glass of this 100% Sauvignon Blanc, which was aged sur lie for six months. The wine has excellent purity, palate presence and a dry, crisp, zesty style. Drink it over the next several years.
