For the 2002 vintage, three "lots" of wine were made: stainless steel, stainless steel & aged on the spent yeast, and French oak & aged on the spent yeast (sur lies in French). The oak-aged lot accounts for but 10% of the production, so the wine really features bright, zesty, citrusy (lime, especially) notes. It's big without being heavy. And you won't mistake it for Chardonnay or Riesling. It's pure Sauvignon on the nose and palate.
