Region: Central Coast
Cépage: Sauvignon Blanc; Semillon
Size: 750 ml
Rating(s): 93 (RP)
" The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Fragment is one of the best Sauvignon Blancs I've tasted in 2018, and it's especially impressive for its price point. It aged in 33% stainless steel, 25% once-used French oak, 20% acacia, 15% concrete and 7% neutral oak and contains a touch of Sémillon. It has aromas of beeswax, white pepper, green herbs and spices with a core of perfumed white peaches and accents of elderflower. Medium-bodied, it's silky and expansive with elegantly layered, spicy fruits and a refreshing burst of juiciness to drive the long finish."
