2022 Caryn Renae Sauvignon Blanc
97% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Sauvignon Musqué
The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc does indeed show the intensity of the vintage. Whole-cluster pressing, barrel fermentation, and extended lees contact give the wine a purity, a broad palate impression, and a lingering, fresh finish. Only a small percentage of new French oak means that the wine is framed by subtle spice notes, but the fruit is the star of the show. Aromas of grapefruit, lemongrass, and white peach are the first impressions. On the palate, the citrus notes dance along with subtle notes of vanilla bean and Amalfi lemon drops. The wine is mouthwatering, juicy, and long, and will certainly be well received as a spring and summer treat.
