Critical Acclaim: 92 pts John Gilman
About the Wine: Calluna’s Estate Blanc comes from our 2.5 acre block of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon planted on the northeast slope of the vineyard in 2013. This is a wine of bright acidity, moderate alcohol, and great depth of flavor. These varietals complement each other as the rounder and honey-like tones of the Semillon are a counterpoint to the citrus, mineral and sharper tones of the Sauvignon Blanc. The barrel fermentation (mostly neutral French oak, about 10% new oak) and barrel aging further harmonize the wine, giving us a graceful wine, which belongs at the table and will potentially age for many years.
Tasting Notes: "...delivers a very refined bouquet of grapefruit, fresh fig, a touch of beeswax, discreet grassiness, a lovely base of soil and a gentle foundation of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and rock solid at the core, with zesty acids, fine balance and cut and a long, complex finish. This is excellent!" 92+ Points - John Gilman, View from the Cellar
