    Users Who Logged This Wine

    This Sauvignon Blanc has a balanced acid level that is refreshing and clean, finishing with the flavors of pears, yellow straw and honey. Gustavo Thrace loves what the Mohr-Fry Ranch is doing in the vineyard so much that they have been using their fruit for 5 years. The fruit was harvested at 22.5 brix, French yeast was added and the wine was fermented and aged in small stainless steel tanks to preserve the crispness.

    Color: pale yellow

    Nose: Great nose of more subtle citrus and some more white fruit. Very refreshing, and not a knock-you-over acidic racer of a Sauv Blanc nose.

    Palate: Great balance is seen here, as well, with a nicely refreshing Sauv Blanc that doesn't try and overdo the grassiness and acidity that you can get with some Sauv Blanc's today (and which I also enjoy). Great white fruit like pear and peach are here, a little grapefruit, but no lime. Has a smoothness that counteracts the acidity to also make it more approachable.
