Quivira Alder Grove 2017 - California, USA - Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
Wine Spectator Top 100: 2019, Rank: 31
Wine Spectator 93 - Immediately deep, complex, and layered with a dominant citrus focus when the wine is first opened. White grapefruit, Key Lime, and a more subtle lemon meringue character all vie for attention. Subtle, yet classic, varietal grassiness emerges along with nuances of vanilla, woodsy spice, and creamy yeastiness. The palate is round and smooth, with viscosity counterpointed by refreshing, totally natural acidity. There is a seamless quality to this wine, where proportion and balance just flow from beginning to end.
Blend: 88% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Semillon
