2018 Quivira "Alder Grove" Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc

SKU #1468562 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Alder Grove contains 25% Sémillon this vintage. It has soft, very pretty scents of elderflower, peaches, musk, tarragon, stone and beeswax. Medium-bodied, the palate is rounded and textural, with perfumed fruits refreshed by tangy acidity and a long finish. This more seriously styled Sauvignon Blanc was mostly barrel fermented and aged in a touch of new oak including French and acacia barrels. 581 cases were made. Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Winery notes: Like the vineyards of Graves, the source of much-celebrated Bordeaux Blanc, and the model for this wine, the vines are planted in gravely soil along the bank of Dry Creek. The blend is 3/4 Sauvignon Blanc and 1/4 Semillon. Both small and large French oak barrel was used during the winemaking process, with the addition of barrels made from Acacia wood. Approximately 15% of cooperage is new. 80% barrel fermented and aged with 20% stainless fermented and aged.Aromatically the wine is sweetly citrus-forward, with notes of orange marmalade, candied lemon zest, honey, and grapefruit. On the palate, the wine is beautifully crisp with a touch of honeyed texture for the usage of Semillon.
