Spicewood 2016 Sauvignon Blanc
A Sauvignon Blanc of note, this one loves the minerals of these limestone-based vineyards. Together with the typical verve and liveliness of this grape when made into a wine, minerality adds to its refreshing appeal.
Sauvignon Blanc Produced in the Texas Hill Country
This example from the Texas Hill Country is piercing in its aromatic attack — as is expected from this variety — but not overly so. It stylishly combines stone fruit aromas with hints of guava and white peach, with lemon and grapefruit as a base. It is one of the most impressive Sauvignon Blancs from Texas wineries that I have encountered.
Sauvignon Blanc really became recognized worldwide when New Zealand’s wine industry began with their outstanding expression of the grape. As a fan of the Kiwi’s style, I tend to be a bit biased when it comes to the wine, but this one caught my attention.
A Venue Worth a Visit
Spicewood is known for well made wines and it’s is a winery to watch.
Visit the winery and be treated to some Texas hospitality! It’s a beautiful setting, day or night.
Emotional rating: very high for a medium weight, refreshing white.
