2008 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc

International Wine Cellar, Steve Tanzer

Lemon drop and pineapple aromas lifted by a floral topnote. Supple, ripe and pliant, but with more thrust than an even rounder and muskier tank sample of the 2009 that preceded it, a wine that showed an almost chardonnay-like richness. Good grip to the pineapple and sexy oak flavors. Brisk and varietally expressive wine with very good juicy, dusty persistence. 91 points (May/June, 2010) www.wineaccess.com/tanzer
