An excellent price for this bright, expressive Sauvignon Blanc. The 2018 AVETA from Stag’s Leap wine Cellars leads with a refreshing nose of tangerine, papaya, lemongrass and orange blossoms. The flavorful followthrough leads to a long finish filled with orange zest and kiwi. Lovely paired with ceviche or grilled oysters on a warm summer afternoon.
Grassy, citrus-driven and light, this is a fresh, focused white wine, with underlying complexity and subtle weight. The herbal components work well against the crisp, balanced fruit elements of peach and apricot.
