Spring Mountain Vineyard – Sauvignon Blanc 2014 – Napa Valley

Spring Mountain Vineyard – Sauvignon Blanc 2014 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity. It reveals notes of ripe citrus and slight touches of exotic fruits (lychee, quenette, crunchy pineapple) combined with slight touches of crushed pear as well as a subtle touch of lime zest. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, well-built and offers a beautiful acid frame, fat, minerality, freshness, a very slight juiciness as well as gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon, slight touches of fleshy Williams pear, exotic fruits (passion fruit, lychee and discreet touches of kumquat) associated with slight touches of ripe mandarine as well as very discreet toasted touches (in the background). Good length. There are subtle hints of vanilla, fresh almond on the persistence.
