Enjoyed immensely but strange. The label says 60% Sansa Blanca (whatever that is) and 40% Sauvignon Blanc. Yet, the wine was Sauvignon Blanc with nuances/variations (however you want to characterize it). Blind tasted, I certainly would have said "SB" --- no doubt about it.
Maybe those who are better than I can deconstruct the aromas and flavors to pick up the contribution of the Sansa Blanca.
A good week to all,
The nose explodes with bright lemon, Asian pear, green apple, melon, grapefruit, pineapple, along with Sauvignon Blanc fruit, green notes, lychee, and heavy floral notes. The mouth is big and round with nice balancing minerality, round and ripe almost sweet fruit, with herbal notes, that make for a full mouth. The finish is long and spicy with lemon/lime creme fresche and crazy long lasting citrus zest.
