"The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Sunninghill is simply gorgeous in this vintage. Peach, apricot, white flowers and spices meld together in striking Sauvignon loaded with class and elegance. The malolactic fermentation is blocked, but you would never know it by the wine's texture, depth and silkiness."Antonio Galloni
"There is a brilliant 2012 Sauvignon Blanc (100% Sauvignon; 176 cases produced) that sells for song. Made in a Loire Valley-like style with notes of crushed rock, lime, lemon blossoms and honey in the background, this is a pure, fruit-driven, medium-bodied, crisp and stylish white wine to enjoy over the next several years."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate : 2012 Snowden Sauvignon Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc; 176 cases produced
The grapes for our Sauvignon Blanc come from the back side of our property above Lake Hennessy. The grapes are picked by hand early in the morning when still cold. They are pressed and fermented by native yeast in a combination of seasoned oak and stainless steel. The wine stayed on its lees until bottled, unfiltered, May 17 2013.
The 2012 has a beautiful bouquet of white flours, honey, citrus and wet stones. It is pure, polished and yet crisp. It is a wine of character and the perfect pair for seafood, chili peppers or sings on its own.
