Excelsior Sauvignon Blanc 2018 – 750ML

V 90

Robertson is a warmer region, so we have to work a bit harder to produce great Sauvignon Blanc. About 35% of the grapes are harvested very early a low sugar levels. The wine made from these grapes is high in acidity, and have prominent grassy aromas, but is low on body and fruity flavors and body. Generally the Sauvignon Blanc on Excelsior grows on alluvial terraces. grapes are harvested by hand for greater quality control. The grapes were immediately de-stemmed and cooled.

Tasting Notes

Yellow-green in color. The nose is complex with passion fruit, grapefruit and ripe fig aromas. The palate is fruity with a zesty acidity.

Vinous

90 points - Vinous // The 2018 Excelsior Sauvignon Blanc has an attractive white peach and yellow plum bouquet that is nicely defined. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with a fine touch of salinity, and brisk and vivacious toward the finish. Delicious. (August, 2018)
