2017 REWA Sauvignon Blanc
The intriguing and varied aromas on this inaugural release of Rewa Sauvignon Blanc
include tropical fruits of grilled pineapple, lychee and guava
as well as lemongrass, meyer lemon zest, nutmeg and caramel.
At entry, the wine is broad but with enough acidity to be refreshing
and highlight the bright fruit notes. The mid palate
is medium-weight where warm caramel and peach crisp flavors linger.
This wine was crafted from Sauvignon Blanc clone 1 from Rewa Vineyard
in the Coombsville AVA, hand-harvested on September 1,
fermented, and then aged in neutral oak and stainless barrels.
