Explore Sauvignon Blanc, 2020
Shipped and sold by Flat Rock Cellars
*Wine Club Member exclusive. This wine was available in our December 2022 box.*Our very first endeavor into making Sauvignon Blanc. Expect ripe with exotic fruits like lychee, passionfruit and guava, plus the classic herbal characteristics of the variety on the nose. The palate starts lush with a creamy texture imparted by the oak-aging, then the zesty acidity reminiscent of grapefruit juice balances the wine through to the finish.
The 2020 vintage was a featured wine in December's Wine Club package, 2022.
