An opulent nose of peach and pineapple leads on this full, round, wooded Sauvignon Blanc from lauded winemaker Gottfried Mocke. Ripe melon mingles with wooded spice in a delicious marriage that is both elegant and distinctive among the more prevalent lean and green New World style of SB. This is clearly a food-driven wine, meant to hold its own against stronger dishes. The finish is long and touched with spice. Delightful and distinctive.
