Inglenook Sauvignon Blanc 2018

While Inglenook is perhaps best known for Cabernet Sauvignon, the lower portion of their Chateau vineyard, known as Tank House, has proven to be an exceptional site for growing white grape varieties. The sandy-clay loam soils in this area of the estate have good water retention capacity and underlying gravel for drainage, features that are critical for the development of both Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. The 2018 Inglenook Sauvignon Blanc (89% Sauvignon, 11% Sémillon) displays intense, fresh aromas of gooseberry, honeysuckle, and lemon zest. Adding further complexity on the palate are flavours of white peach and pear, which are brought into focus by the balanced acidity. There is a distinct energy and a varietal dynamic that are anchored by the minerality and finely delineated mouthfeel of this classic expression of Sauvignon Blanc.
