This 2012 release possesses a brilliant pale straw color with a hint of green. Its green undertone demonstrates the freshness of this wine as it was handled extremely carefully to avoid exposure to oxygen from harvest to bottle. The wine is bursting with ultra-ripe ruby red grapefruit, passion fruit, lychee, white peach and banana aromas. The palate is bright and focused, suggesting citrus compote laced with white pepper spice. THe mouth-watering finish is crisp and long, its peachy citrus notes echoing through to the next sip.
"Crisp and refreshing, this version features fresh and vibrant notes of green apple, lime zest and peach, with a good punch of flavors on the finish and a hint of apple blossom aromatics. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. –MW"
"Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of spiced apple, pungent white peach, lemon and lime, complicated by tropical fruit, pepper and floral nuances. Supple and on the soft side, with ripe, pliant citrus fruit flavors showing moderate cut and length. Finishes dry, with a hint of warmth."

Always a standout wine in the Napa Valley, the 2012 Hall Sauvignon Blanc is once again on target to be of the valley's best white wines. Redolent, with bright melon flavors, the wine shows its true varietal heritage with a hint of dried herbs. Well balanced, yet succulent.
