    Rating: 92 (9/3/2020)

    Bright and focused on the incisive nose, displaying lime zest, green apple, honeysuckle and dusty mineral scents, along with a touch of succulent herbs. Dry and lively on the palate, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors that betray no excess weight. Closes on a stony note, delivering strong, floral-driven persistence. All stainless steel.

    (Editors' Choice!) Jay Somers, who has worked with Croft fruit for the past 20 years, launches his new brand with this outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. Powerful flavors of grapefruit, pineapple and gooseberry pierce through with peppery thistle. The flavors are crisp, lingering and beautifully defined.
