Tasting Notes

The consistently delicious Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc will delight your senses. Upon opening, you will experience the unctuous tropical aromas of pineapple and mango.

Appearance

This light, bright Californian Sauvignon Blanc looks fresh and inviting as it fills the glass. You will notice shades of green from the grape, but overall it is a pale yellow still wine. Think of a typical blond “Californian” angel with sparkling green eyes, and you will have an idea of what this wine would like in female form.

Aroma

As you bring the glass to the nose, you will inhale the intoxicating exotic flavors. You will find aromas of ripe peach, mango, and orange peel, followed by hints of lime and pineapple. The Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc smells like a bowl full of the tastiest, ripe fruit just waiting to be ravished by you. You may think you are dreaming if you pick up the smells of freshly cut grass on a summers day. And that is just the start of the adventure.

Taste

This Sauvignon Blanc is easy to identify on the palate because it has all the essential flavors that we demand from this type of wine. Opening with Passion fruit, citrus, and sherbet, it embraces the palate and turns up the intensity with a refreshing lemon acidity when it reaches mid-palate. There you will find hints of guava and other tree fruits. With full roundness, balanced flavors, and its viscous texture, it moves slowly towards a tangy finish.

Finish

The finish is long and crisp with hints of verbena and tangy lemon zest. It has a long, and balanced finish that will leave your palate cleansed. Each sip is like taking a cool shower on a humid day. 

Rating

It’s a good idea to keep a good supply chilling in the fridge should any special occasion suddenly present itself.
