Product DescriptionWine Enthusiast Review
This is an outstanding white of 91% Sauvignon Blanc with 8% Semillon and 1% Sauvignon Vert, the whole fermented in 92% French oak and the remainder in stainless-steel tank. Bright and fresh in peach and wet stone, it is nicely textured, with just enough weight and breadth to add complexity and structure.
Wine Tasting Notes
The elegant and lively Cliff Lede Napa Sauvignon Blanc opens with a feast of ambrosial lemon curd, elderflower, bosc pear flesh, and apricots aromas. There is also delightful array of toasty brioche, coconut, and orange blossom notes reveling amongst the upper register. A beautifully bright acidity leads the entry with a nectar of citrusy key lime and grapefruit, followed nicely with pineapple, and honeydew melon flavors. The grand finish flourishes with pleasurable hints of marzipan, oyster shell, honeycrisp apple, fresh mint, and green tea.
