Sauvignon Blanc
Critic's Rating 93 pts

Tasting Notes: This wine is presently showing fresh tropical aromatics and subtle herbaceous undertones with flavors reminiscent of goose berry, passion fruit, grapefruit, and melon. The wine has a mouthwatering acidity balanced with a small amount of residual sugar giving a soft supple mouth feel and has a minerality reminiscent of other River Stone wines. Serve slightly chilled.

Winemaking: The grapes were hand-picked at peak ripeness for the style of wine desired, then destemmed. Grapes left to cold soak several hours and then pressed to tanks. The juice was then allowed to settle before transferring to another stainless steel tank where it was inoculated with yeast starting the temperature controlled fermentation.  The wines were racked several more times over the next few months before finning, filtering, and bottling. 

Residual Sugar: 8.2 g/L

Wow! Still gorgeous and everything one could want in a Sauvignon Blanc. River Stone Estate Winery 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is just so fresh, zingy and beautifully balanced. The 2022 is medium-bodied and dry, but zesty fruity with ripe gooseberry, passionfruit, grapefruit zest, subtle herbal and mineral notes balanced with mouth-watering acidity and an amazingly long finish. No sharp edges here, just so, so good!

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for this vintage were sourced from the winery's Boulder City Vineyard as well as a neighbouring vineyard in North Oliver. Grapes were hand-harvested, destemmed, cold soaked for several hours and then pressed to tanks for a controlled temperature fermentation. The wine was racked several more times over the following few months before finning, filtering and bottling. Tasted July 2023.

    This is a wonderful Sauvignon Blanc, the best I have tasted so far this year! Aromas of citrus, and tropical fruits with floral jasmine notes. Flavours of lemon/lime, pineapple, honeydew melon and passionfruit with green apple on the finish. A beautifully textured mouthfeel. 92 Points — Julian Park, BC Wine Trends
