Vinous | Rating: 94Tasted from barrel, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Georgia is rich, unctuous and deeply textured, with a striking interplay of the intensity of the year, but the greater freshness that has become part of the house style over the last few years. White peach, mint, dried flowers, lemon confit and lightly tropical notes meld into the oily, unctuous finish.Author: Antonio Galloni
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2015 Georgia Sauvignon Blanc is redolent of ripe apricots, passion fruit and guava plus notions of fresh hay, chalk dust and acacia honey. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is positively electric, with intense tropical and stone fruit flavors framed by lively freshness and a satiny texture, finishing long and chalky. 350 cases were made.Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
