2021 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Napa County/Sonoma County 

Spottswoode’s exceptional, classically styled Sauvignon Blanc has  been produced since 1984. Highly acclaimed, it is considered one of the  “Super Sauvignons,” a term coined by wine writer Karen MacNeil to  describe a rare class of wines considered to be among the world’s utmost  expressions of this noble grape.  Crafted with grapes from Spottswoode Estate, as well as those from  other iconic family-owned vineyards, this wine is fermented in a  combination of French oak, small stainless steel barrels, a clay  amphora, and ceramic and concrete cuves. It is an eminently drinkable  yet cellar-worthy Sauvignon that is energetic and sublime, fresh and  well-integrated, with extraordinary aromas, effortless poise, and  remarkable complexity. Noted wine reviewers have written that  “Spottswoode has turned Sauvignon Blanc into an art form,” and have  hailed this wine as one of the world’s “best Sauvignon Blancs,” calling  it the “aristocracy of domestic Sauvignon Blanc.” Winemaker Notes: Layers of tropical  fruits and floral aromas invite you into this intriguing and dynamic  Sauvignon Blanc. Notes of fresh lime and grapefruit add tension and  bring freshness on the approach, while yellow and white peach  intermingle with subtle oak and a creamy meringue mid-palate. Hints of  minerality and saline contribute to its long finish and complete this  complex wine. Medium bodied, layered, and refreshing!
