2019 Quivet Cellars McGah Family Sauvignon Blanc
McGah Family Vineyard, ToKalon Clone1
Citrus fruit-driven, with lifted notes of lemon rind, grapefruit and crushed rock minerality
Glistening straw with steely lemon hues greet the eye while juicy stone fruit, white flowers and clementine jump from the glass. Primarily pineapple and grapefruit on the palate, these juxtapose with very expressive nose of beeswax, apricot and melon. Its rich and oily mineral mouthfeel is followed by tangy acidity with herbal and light crushed gravel elements.
