Merry Edwards is in her fifth decade of winemaking and still claims she hasn’t yet made her “best wine ever.” That bodes well for the future, because this beloved winemaker and consultant superstar continues to make waves with brilliant offerings like this compelling dance of yellow peach, melon, guava and crisp apple. Accents of dry summer grass, toasted crème brulee, and minerality add sophistication and complexity.

Wine Spectator

This white offers a complex mix of lime sherbet, makrut lime leaf, lemon curd and orange blossom flavors that are fragrant and complex on a fleshy, succulent frame, with notes of nectarine and ripe Crenshaw melon. Harmonious, with a fresh thread of acidity on the finish.

Wine Advocate

The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc opens from youthful yeasty tones to fresh citrus and green tropical fruits. The medium-bodied palate is notable for the intensity of its spicy fruits and bright freshness, and it finishes with an anchoring touch of texture.
