Reynoso Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Reynoso Family Vineyards, Alexander Valley, Estate Grown, Sauvignon Blanc 2009 The fruit character of this wine speaks of citrus with riper, tropical notes as well. In the mouth, the acidity has a softer profile than many Sauvignon and the fruit is freshly expressed.

In class we often talk of the great variety that exists in the concept of ‘dry white wine’.  At one end of the spectrum are the wines that are roiling with acidity, quite crisp. At the other end are the white wines that are quite rich, oily and broad.  This wine strikes a balance in the middle of that spectrum with its fresh fruit and softer acidity, while showing no rich and buttery overtones – nice.
