The 2015 Naissance has aromas of honeydew, lemon zest, yellow flowers, and green apple. Full, crisp mouthfeel and intense minerality with a grassy, citrus finish.
he Fifty Best held a “blind” tasting of 20 recent release California Sauvignon Blancs with 15 members of our wine judging panel. Strict tasting rules were applied. The order of service was established beforehand by lottery. Each of the wines were poured into fresh wine glasses from new sealed bottles and served chilled. Only ice water and white peasant bread were available to cleanse the palate.
The 2015 Naissance is a pale yellow wine with aromas of very ripe melon dew, juicy orange, lemon zest, plump pineapple and Asian pear with an intense undernote of fresh cut grass. The finish is long and full but crispy mouthfeel with lingering flavors and acidity.
