Illumination Sauvignon Blanc 2015


SKU 23239


2015 Illumination is a wine of exceptional aromatic complexity and purity. The bright fruit aromas of white peach and lemon sorbet interweave with fresh herbs, fig and beeswax honey. On the palate, the wine is alive with exotic stone fruit, lemon zest, and a hint of minerality that lead to a fresh flavorful finish.

Wine AdvocateThe white wine, the 2015 Illumination, is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Musqué clone of Sauvignon Blanc heavily represented, giving it an exotic tropical fruit character and more of the texture of Chardonnay than most wines made from these varietals. Its intoxicating aroma of honeysuckle, tangerine and mango along with some caramelized grapefruit and citrus oil is just delectable. It is fresh, lively, dry and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. Drink it over the next several years.
