Ashes & Diamonds Blanc Napa Valley 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Ashes & Diamonds|
A crisp, focused and barrel-fermented co-mingling of the two white grapes, made by Steve Matthiasson, this wine offers a taste of wet stone, kiwi and apple skin. It shows lively acidity throughout and a sleek tension on the palate, complex and intriguing.
Distinctive, striking an appealing balance between crisp lemon curd and tangy white grapefruit flavors, with rich notes of lanolin, spices and dried herbs. This is complex and harmonious on the finish. Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now. 1,200 cases made.
A blend of 50% Semillon and 50% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2018 Blanc skyrockets out of the glass with bold suggestions of lemon curd, key lime pie and ripe apples, plus hints of fresh hay, struck match and lemongrass. Light to medium bodied, the palate is all minerals and citrus peel, featuring a racy backbone and long, steely finish.
