"A dense, phenolic wine, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc captures all of the intensity of the vintage in its ample, oily texture. Even so, there is notable cut to the orchard fruit, lime and mint flavors. In 2015, the blend is 78% Sauvignon Blanc and 22% Semillon. This is a gorgeous wine." Antonio Galloni 93+ Points
Accendo Sauvignon Blanc is the product of discriminating fruit sourcing and conscientious, diligent farming. It is a powerful Sauvignon Blanc, yet with a delicacy and finesse that can only come with a winemaking philosophy that honors the fruit and the vineyard’s terroir. We give this wine extra time in barrel and bottle prior to release, resulting in an exquisitely balanced Sauvignon Blanc that is aromatically complex, concentrated in flavor and richly textured – a wine influenced by both a Graves from Bordeaux and a Sauvignon Blanc from the New World.
Floral notes of acacia and honeysuckle complement the exotic fruit characters, Meyer lemon, guava and pineapple, enlivened by notes of ginger, marzipan and beeswax. On the palate, a mineral vein reminiscent of wet stone and oyster shell provides structure for the fruit and floral components. Full bodied and round, the wine exhibits great range and definition, with its firm backbone, lively acidity and persistent finish.
