White Wine by Enkidu from Sonoma County, California. This Sauvignon Blanc is more Loire in style as opposed to California. What this means is that the winemaker is looking for more acidity, minerality and true Sauvignon Blanc varietal character. The texture is bright and grainy, but balanced with richness and creaminess from new oak and sur lie aging in barrels. One might pick up on slightly ripened tropical fruit with coriander and mace, tinged with a little dried wild grass and green apple. The mouthfeel is full with toasted oak and integrated acid contributing to an extremely long finish.
