Illumination Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
THE 2018 ILLUMINATION is a complex, sophisticated and vibrant wine. Floral aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine and white rose complement the notes of white peach, Meyer lemon, pink grapefruit and kiwi. In the mouth, a beautiful tension and fine acidity provides brightness to its creamy texture and flavors of juicy mandarin, guava and wet stones. A blend of Sauvignon Musque, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, this wine is exceptionally well balanced in intensity with a distinctive creamy, yet mineral texture. Tension and minerality prevail through the long and elegant finish.
Generous and plump, with fleshy flavors of ripe melon, peach and apricot, accented by crisp citrus, honeysuckle and spice details, gaining momentum on the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.
