Tasting Set Includes:
- Pascal Jolivet Sancerre
Pale and vibrant in color. The wine is fresh, clean and screaming with racy acidity. On the palate it is fresh and tightly wound; acidity is tempered by very subtle residual sugar; very clean; alive, racy, youthful. Overall, a dry and elegant wine.
- Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
Pale straw in color. The aromas are bright, fresh, citrus driven sauvignon, with elements of honeydew melon, pears and gala apples in the background. A very pure, yet restrained, classic sauvignon expression. The citrus core of flavours are juicy and intense. Deliciously refreshing saline acidity and mellow rounded texture on the finish.
- Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc
This elegant and lively Sauvignon Blanc opens with a feast of ambrosial lemon curd, elderflower, bosc pear flesh, and apricots aromas. There is also delightful array of toasty brioche, coconut, and orange blossom notes reveling amongst the upper register. A beautifully bright acidity leads the entry with a nectar of citrusy key lime and grapefruit, followed nicely with pineapple, and honeydew melon flavors. The grand finish flourishes with pleasurable hints of marzipan, oyster shell, honeycrisp apple, fresh mint, and green tea.
