2017 Sauvignon Blanc 750ML

2017 Sauvignon Blanc 750ML

With a pale gold hue, the 2017 Inglenook Sauvignon Blanc opens with fresh, subtle notes of lemon-lime zest, white peach, lemongrass, and citrus blossoms. A light touch of French oak adds structure and complexity to this surprisingly full-bodied, vibrant wine, which exhibits distinct minerality on the palate. The finish is highly aromatic with lingering freshness and a return of the citrus and white peach notes present on the nose.
