Natalie's Score: 89/100

Love this racy California Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon white wine blend. Beautifully dry, vibrant and zesty with citrus peel, ripe stone fruit, lemon grass and flinty mineral flavours long and mouth-watering on the palate. A small percentage of the Sauvignon Blanc is barrel fermented. Pair with smoked fish, a baguette and a picnic in a fresh green meadow.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: pork tenderloin, pork tacos, grilled chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Duckhorn 2018 is a racy mostly Sauvignon Blanc white wine with a smattering of Semillon added in the final blend. Vibrant with ripe stone fruit, lemon grass, honeysuckle and clean mineral flavours supple on the palate. Duckhorn has been producing world-class Sauvignon Blanc since 1982. - Community Wine Reviews
