2018 Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc | Russian River Valley, Sonoma County California 750ml


We are excited to announce that this inviting new Sauvignon Blanc contains 60 percent of our own estate fruit. Even though the Meredith and Maefield vineyards were planted recently, in 2015, they are producing delicious fruit in abundant quantity! Sauvignon Musque makes up 42% of the blend; the balance is the Shenandoah clone. The wine was fully barrel fermented in Tonnellierie Cadus barrels, 18% new. Lees stirring was then done twice weekly for six months, building luscious body.
The aroma of this wine is compelling, virtually reaching out and grabbing our attention. Yellow peach, melon, guava and crisp Fuji apple are accented with hints of tropical mango and pineapple. Lime, Minneola tangelo and orange blossom lend citrus notes. Accents of dry summer grass, vanilla-toned panna cotta and toasted creme brulee create complexity. And underlying minerality adds further sophistication.
The rich palate coats the tongue balanced with hints of yummy Creamsicle and Ruby Red grapefruit. Refreshing acidity and a mouthwatering finish cap the sensual experience of this exceptional Sauvignon Blanc. Delightful now, with bottle age, this wine will be a knockout!

A pretty thread of orange water adds an aromatic lift to the core of nectarine, apricot and lemon zest flavors, set on a succulent, fleshy frame. Dried ginger, honeysuckle and melon notes linger on the long, expressive finish. | 93 points, MaryAnn Worobiec for Wine Spectator Insider

I don't think there's a Sauvignon Blanc out there with the complex array of aromatics and unique flavors offered up by this stellar super-Sauv ...Scents of salted butterscotch, peach blossom, just-mowed grass and pineapple fill the air. Developed flavors of jasmine-soaked pears and honeyed tangerine are mesmerizing - and the acidity pulls it all together. | 95 points, Meridith May for Tasting Panel
