Chalk Hill Estate Winery Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Russian River Valley, California

Pale lemon in color with a green hue.

Strong nose of gooseberries, citrus, limes, green apples, light grass, spices, minerals and white pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and thick legs.

Dry on the palate with limes, lemons, green apples, grapefruits, bitter herbs, spices, light earth and black pepper.

Nice length on the finish with limes and grapefruits.

This is a very tasty Sauvignon Blanc from Chalk Hill in Sonoma County. Fruit forward and easy drinking.

Spicy, tangy and interesting. Crisp and refreshing.

Nicely balanced and good by itself or with food. A good pool wine as well.

Will pair nicely with oysters. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Sauvignon Gris and 3% Sauvignon Musqué. Aged for 7 months in (60%) French oak barrels and stainless steel vats.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$22.
