The 2018 Rewa Sauvignon Blanc (Second release) is flat out stunning! Remarkable, a MUST HAVE! Very limited production wine. Only 168 cases were produced
The Wine: On the nose bright floral aromatics meld seamlessly into a core of generous orchard fruit as this ample, richly-textured white that shows off its considerable personality. It is 100% Sauvignon Blanc, and the wine has a spectacular bouquet of caramelized citrus, honeysuckle, orange blossom and brioche. It is amazingly rich and dense, with the bold, yet very elegant texture. If you wouldn’t know you are drinking a Napa white, you might believe it to be o a great Grand Cru White Burgundy!
Celia Welch Notes: “The lively and complex aromas of the 2018 vintage of Rewa Sauvignon Blanc include citrus, wild gooseberry, guava, green apple peel, kiwi and white flowers. On the palate, the wine is bright and lifted by notes of fresh pineapple and lemon curd combined with a stony minerality.
This wine was crafted from Sauvignon Blanc clone 1 from Rewa Vineyard fermented, and then aged in neutral oak and stainless barrels.”
