Duckhorn Vineyards – Sauvignon Blanc 2017 – Napa Valley

Duckhorn Vineyards – Sauvignon Blanc 2017 – Napa Valley

The nose is fresh and fruity. It reveals notes of lemon zest and tangerine zest associated with small notes of crunchy fresh peach and discreet hints of green apple skin. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, suavity, a small fat, a small freshness, a small tension as well as a slight acid frame and a very slight salinity (in the background). On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe citrus, lychee and small notes of quenette associated with a slight hint of juicy / fleshy peach.
