Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine is presently showing tropical aromatics and flavors of goose berry, passion fruit, grapefruit, and melon. The wine has a mouthwatering acidity balanced with a small amount of residual sugar, giving a soft supple mouth feel and minerality reminiscent of other River Stone wines. Serve slightly chilled.
Ratings
River Stone Estate Winery 2018 Sauvignon Blanc - 88pts Date Tasted: July 17th, 2019 Subtler, on the pleasantly pungent nose than recent, more aromatic vintages, the 2018 edition of Sauvignon Blanc, sourced from a neighboring property in Oliver, keeps with the house style of a punchy mixture of herbs, citrus zest and tropical fruit. Minerals and a touch of spice show on the higher tempo palate where intense, yet smooth, citrus peel acidity and bite keep the off-dry levels of residual sugar in-check, leaving a dry, moderate finish. Ready to go now and to be paired with a hot Summer's day. Drink 2019-2021. - Liam Carrier ©copyright 2019 IconWines.ca
Vineyard Notes
These grapes came from a neighboring vineyard located just North of Oliver on the west side of the valley. Vineyard soils are composed of sandy loam deposited during the last glaciation. The vines were in their 10th leaf when the fruit was harvested on September 12th.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand-picked at peak ripeness, then destemmed. The grapes were then left to cold soak for several hours and then pressed to tanks. The juice was then allowed to settle before transferring to another stainless steel tank where it was inoculated with yeast, starting the temperature controlled fermentation. The wines were racked several more times over the next few months before blending, finning, filtering and bottling.

My wife is the Sauvignon Blanc expert of the household. She has only one go to suavblanc and it is from Marlborough. The River Stone has just replaced her first choice!

We opened this bottle just days after receiving it and it was so wonderful. My only regret was we had only ordered 1 bottle but on our next order we will be ordering a few more.
