2021 Sauvignon Blanc - Corona del Valle

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    Sauvignon Blanc in northern Mexico tends to lean more towards tropical notes such as pineapple and guava and less in the direction of the smell of fresh cut grass as you get in cooler climates - this wine is a good example of a winery figuring out a way to split the difference and the balance in this vintage is the best to date. From an organically farmed vineyard site that is rich in iron and minerals, the wine portrays taught iterations of these tropical tones, framed by refreshing citrus notes and both are comingled with floral and herbaceous undertones. Light-bodied, bright and balanced this is an excellent pairing wine as well as a wine to sip on its own.
