The poor soils and gentle ocean breezes create tremendous aromatic potential and the great intensity reflected in the wine's floral aromas and fresh, exotic fruit.
A full, balanced wine with personality and exquisite elegance.
"Pale, green-edged straw. Energetic aromas of lime, lemongrass, minerals and honeysuckle are underscored by a subtle note of tarragon. Stains the palate with seemingly weightless citrus and orchard fruit flavors, picking up zesty spice and mineral qualities on the back end. the finish repeats the lemongrass and mineral notes and lingers impressively. I'd stack this up against plenty of the Loire Valley sauvignon blancs I've had in the last year."

"Very fresh, with bracing lemon peel, white asparagus and herb notes backed by a clean, salt-tinged finish. Deliciously pure. Drink now."
"The 2008 Amayna Sauvignon Blanc emits a stylish perfume of fresh herbs, new cut grass, citrus, and melon. Elegant yet mouth-filling, this flavorful effort has superb concentration and length. It is an outstanding value.
