Pale yellow color. Exotic nose of melon and lemon. Crisp fruit with great cut. Lemon zest, melons, lovely minerality. Beautiful, juicy acidity. Fabulous balance. No grassiness yet still distinctively Sauvignon Blanc. Beautiful minerality. Finish goes on forever with great minerality and lemon/lime notes. Superb with years ahead of it. Drink next 6 to 8 years, possibly longer. Every bottle I have had of this wine has raised Sauvignon Blanc to a new level. "A+"

You are so right about how this producer raises the bar. Great wine.
