The 2008 harvest started off a bit challenging, but produced beautiful fruit all the same. The year began with unexpected last frost, heat spikes and unseasonable rain. However, the end of spring and all through summer provided idyllic conditions that remained around 80 degrees with dry weather and few heat spikes. Lower yields allowed intense, superb fruit to develop.
Our Angeline Sauvignon Blanc is the ideal refresher for the warm weather months. Fresh floral, honeydew melon and bright tropical aromatics lead to crisp and lively green melon flavors. This wine finishes soft and light with a lingering touch of citrus.
"Angeline is one of the best second labels in California, in this case from Martin Ray. This 08' Sauvignon smacks of ripe, tangy Asian pear, gooseberry, fig, green melon, vanilla and spice flavors brightened by wonderfully crisp acidity. Just beautiful, and a nice bargain at this price."
I liked this wine but it does have a good kick to it at the end I usually only drink fruity white wines so this wine was a good pick for me.
