Attention Sauvignon Blanc lovers of the world! Stand up and take notice, this is the goods! 'Lillie' from Larkmead is a new favorite. This beauty is a 50/50 blend of old vines coupled with a new, younger parcel of Sauvignon Blanc. Aromatics are lifted with tropical notes, featuring guava. The palate is layered with lemon and mango. Bookended with vibrant acidity, the finish is long and satisfying. A must have for Sauv Blanc fans!

Lots of dried pineapple, lemon rind, and hot stones on the nose. Full-bodied, dense and round with lots of dried lemon and cooked apples. Hints of wax. Bitter lemon, too. Layered, long and flavorful. Drink now.
