The 2016 Georgia Sauvignon Blanc comes 100% from Totem Vineyard in Yountville and is fermented and aged 18 months in 100% new French oak. It leaps from the glass with notions of ripe peaches, fresh pears, pineapple and guava with touches of chalk dust, white pepper, dill seed and honeysuckle. Medium to full-bodied, it completely coats the palate with tropical fruits and spicy layers, lifted with a zippy line of acidity and finishing long and minerally. Give it another year or two in bottle and drink it over the next 8-10 years. 350 cases produced, to be released in July 2019. - LPB

Exciting and dense white with lemon-zest and dried-pineapple character. Peaches, limes and fennel, too. Full and flavorful. Dried fruit comes through. Finishes minerally, salty and dry. Drink now.

(91-94 points) The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Georgia is wonderfully fresh and nuanced. It has perhaps just a touch more depth than the 2015, but ultimately it is made in a similar vein that balances fruit intensity with structure. Chamomile, lemon confit and floral notes lead into the attractive finish. -- Antonio Galloni

The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Georgia is another Bordeaux Blanc look-alike and reminds me of a white from the likes of Smith Haut Lafitte in the Graves region of Bordeaux. Fermented all in new French oak, this powerful, concentrated effort boasts a vivid gold color, notes of lemon curd, spiced melon, and tart pineapple, medium to full body, bright acidity, and a layered, concentrated, rich texture that develops beautifully with time in the glass. Don’t miss it.
