2018 Caspar Estate Sauvignon Blanc 3 Box
2018 was a near-perfect growing season started later than previous years, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and is coming to a close for a majority of wineries throughout the valley. Wines from the 2018 vintage are now quietly developing in cellars, and winemakers are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift it appears Mother Nature has given them.
This is our first release of Caspar Estate Sauvignon Blanc, an absolutely lovely fresh and luscious wine. In the glass you’ll notice its straw color with a golden tinge on the rim. The nose offers an instant waft of tropical fruit with Meyer lemon’s perfume. Delicate floral aromas remind you of Spring time in the garden. On the palate the wine is expressive with a rich silkiness, a pure pleasure. A subtle spice from the small time of oak aging adds just the right mouth feel to our estate wine.
This is a classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, demanding oysters, grilled shrimp, Thai food or a porch and a glass.
Tempting to drink now but will age for another 2 to 5 years.
