Substance Sb Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||United States, Washington|
Coming from the Sunset Vineyard in the Ancient Lakes region of Washington State, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Vineyard Collection reveals a light gold hue as well as classic, ripe Sauvignon notes of chalky minerality, honeyed citrus, green herbs, and exotic flowers. Nicely textured on the palate, with medium-bodied richness and bright, almost racy acidity, it stays balanced and enjoyable, with lots of character. Give bottles another year or so and it will have 7-8 years of longevity. It's a heck of a wine for the price!
Pale bright yellow; lighter than the 2018 example. Slightly leesy, chicken-soupy aromas and flavors of lemon peel, menthol and anise, plus a soupçon of vanillin oak. Offers good palate presence, with firm acidity and a strong lemony character giving the wine very good grip. Finishes subtly long, with tart lemon zest and licorice notes lingering. A bit purer and more concentrated than the 2018 version.
