2016 Galante Vineyards Wagon Wheel Sauvignon Blanc
Such incredible concentrated aromas of peach, pineapple and lemon zest, this 2016 Galante Vineyards Wagon Wheel Sauvignon Blanc is definitely now in my all-time favorite top 10 for this varietal. A lot of Sauvignon Blanc give an almost pungent, overly strong grassy overtone on the nose, but not this one. It is well refined, not overly acidic and is bursting with flavors of peach, slate, pineapple and lemon candies. The wine is refreshing, bright and extremely memorable. The back of the throat really opens up for this wine. My biggest regret is not having a plate of soft cheeses or some bruschetta to sit back with, watch the snow fall and finish this beautiful bottle of wine. You better hurry with this one, as the production was only 380 cases. If you're looking for something different and delicious that will drink well over the next 3 years easily, this is it. Thank me later.
