Wine Enthusiast 90 points: Dry Creek hits another Sauvignon Blanc grand slam with the 2013, dripping in racy minerality, pretty floral aromatics and layers of fresh-squeezed lemon, melon and tropical mango. The palate gives just enough weight to keep things complex and interesting without becoming overbearing. A small percentage of Sauvignon Musqué adds to the mix.
Dry Creek Vineyard was the first winery to plant Sauvignon Blanc in the Dry Creek Valley, and this wine epitomizes our expertise in growing this wonderfully diverse varietal. At first swirl, the 2013 vintage presents effusive aromatics of honeydew melon, cantaloupe and mango. There are also underlying layers of citrus and a sense of depth and vibrancy that make this wine extremely pleasing. On the palate, the wine is invigorating with fresh lemon-lime, kiwi and grapefruit notes. We blend in 9% Sauvignon Musque, a unique clonal selection of Sauvignon Blanc, which adds additional layers of tropical fruit and a fleshy, full-bodied mouthfeel. Simply delicious from start to finish!
Blend: 91% Sauvignon Blanc, 9% Sauvignon Musque.
