The Greatest Sauvignon Blanc?

06 Apr The Greatest Sauvignon Blanc?

This incredibly unique Sauvignon Blanc comes from one of our favorite producers in the Terry Theise portfolio. You may think you’ve tried every style of this grape between Bordeaux, California, and New Zealand, but Germany has its own style and it is gorgeous. We think this is among the greatest Sauvignon Blancs on Earth. It has a wonderful tropical character with hints of brown sugar and white flowers. It’s complex and amazing.

2015 Von Winning Sauvignon Blanc Dudesheim “I,” Pfalz, Germany
On Sale $32.99
The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc I has an intense citrus color and opens with a deep and concentrated nose of ripe tropical fruits, lemon peel and crushed stones. Full-Bodied, intense and concentrated on the palate, this a powerful, firmly structured and elegant wine. It has an aromatic finish and fine tannins. The 2015 is pretty round and generous, already accessible to drink. It is rather a Graves than a Loire character, but the lingering fruit aromas are Pfalz at its best.
