Arkenstone Sauvignon Blanc 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain|
This is a true stunner. One of our very best vintages yet. Yellow-gold with a silvery rim, the aromatics of honeysuckle, wet stone, flinty minerality, caramelized sugar and subtle spring flowers greet you as you stick your nose into this well-structured, rich Sauvignon Blanc. A full, yet soft mouthfeel with a teasing citrus zest opens to undertones of honeyed lemon grass, almonds, papaya, kiwi and ripe melons. Beautifully balanced and structurally complex, this wine unfolds gradually to expose multiple layers as you drink it, and continues to open through a very long clean green apple, pineapple and lavender finish. It is an elegant aperitif, but also pairs beautifully with food.
