Joseph Phelps – Sauvignon Blanc 2018 – St Helena, Napa Valley

Joseph Phelps – Sauvignon Blanc 2018 – St Helena, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and offers a very fine intensity/freshness. It reveals notes of ripe lemon, crushed peach and small notes of exotic fruits associated with fine touches of lemon zests. The mouth is fruity, elegant, well-balanced and offers a beautiful finesse, fat and a fine grain. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe/juicy lemon, juicy/ripe apple and small notes of papaya associated with a hint of toasted almond. Good length.
