Johner Sur Lie (Gladstone) 2019 Sauvignon Blanc
93 Points Cameron Douglas
"Intense, but not pungent, complex without being overdone, fruity, varietal and herbaceous. Flavours on the nose and palate include - apple and pear, quince and white peach, sweet fresh herbs of thyme ans sage, white pepper spice accentuated by vibrant acidity. Nicely weighted, leesy and fruity, really nice satin mouth feel. Fresh, dry and lengthy finish. Best drinking from today and through 2023+"
Think you know everthing about, Sauvignon Blanc....think again. This is one sophisticated drop.
"This single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc has some barrel fermentation and also extended lees contact giving the wine a broader, more complex character, along with a flinty minerality reminiscent of Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
Elegant, with a bright, clear lemon gold hue and an intriguing nose of stone fruit and gooseberry. Fresh and inviting, the palate shows intense lemon and tropical notes with a creamy undertone. A wonderful flinty and mineral feel, with racy acidity and a long, crisp finish."
