VML 2020 Sauvignon Blanc North Coast
This Russian River beauty is fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks and barrels so the fruit just shines through in the glass. The nose is a bright ray of lemon-lime, orange zest, and ripe grapefruit sunshine paired with just a hint of sweat and salinity to pull it back in check. The palate will make you sit up in your seat a little bit, with refreshing notes of pineapple, mandarin orange, and pink lemonade. The transition from mid-palate to finish is so natural, with acidity being the primary facilitator. Here we uncover more delicate acid, sweet fruit, and minerality to add a bit more complexity and length.
