2016 Forthright Sauvignon Blanc


Barrel-aged for two years after fermentation in both cement egg and French oak, this wine is lush and refreshing. Combining aromas of orange blossom, mango, ripe honeydew and lemon custard with a hint of toasted oak, the wine finishes with key lime, toasty crème brûlée and crisp citrus.

Tasting Notes

Honey, tropical fruit, nuts and clean minerality with a dry finish. Drink it on the beach with oysters, scallops, a cheese board or just the sunshine.
