This Sauvignon Blanc was fermented with indigenous yeast. It offers a lush combination of herbaceous and citrus fruit aromas and a dry, crisp, medium body, texturzied by a super slim tannin profile owing to 18 hours of whole cluster skin contact prior to fermentation in a stainless steel tank.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Sauvignon Blanc "Minimalist" is unoaked, dry and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. As we saw with the "Minimalist" Chenin Blanc reviewed this issue, this bottling emphasizes its fruit--ripe, luscious and (oh, yes!) remarkably tasty. That said, it achieves that at the expense of subduing a lot of Sauvignon Blanc character--the aromatics are a bit muted. Instead, this underlines "sexy." Admittedly, it executes that extremely well. I'm sure many are going to just flip for this. Underneath, there is just enough tension to make me think this might hold well, but it isn't a wine that is filled with energy and verve. It will be interesting to see where it goes. It has such a "come hither" feel now, though, that I suspect that no one is going to be keeping it too long.

Wine EnthusiastWhile delicate in body, this elegantly perfumed wine bursts with zesty citrus and crisp honeydew flavors. It's vivacious, cutting and fresh yet persistent through a long, slightly chalky finish.

Wine SpectatorSoft and forward, offering a frank grapefruit curd note lined with light straw and peach accents. Friendly in profile, but not very Sauvignon Blanc-like. Drink now. 222 cases made.
