Quintessa 'Illumination' Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||California, Napa County|
The 2019 Illumination is expressive and alive with complex aromas, bright flavors, and beautiful texture. On the nose, notes of grapefruit, kumquat, and guava are layered with floral notes of peach blossom, fresh herbs and hay, creating an immediate sensation of freshness. On the palate, the wine continues with flavors of stone fruit, lemon zest, and a distinctive creamy yet mineral texture. This wine is precise and bright, with a fresh and flavorful finish.
61% Sauvignon Blanc Musque, 24% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Semillon.
This is a really beautiful, with dried apple, pear and green melon, as well as some white pineapple. Cement and crushed stone, too. It’s full-bodied with a creamy texture and a flavorful, caressing finish. Energetic zest at the end. 61% Napa County and 39% Sonoma County. Drink or hold.
