The Joseph Phelps Sauvignon Blanc 2014 is a bright, crisp white wine that artfully balances citrus and cream flavors. The wine was barrel aged in a combination of new and older French oak for a voluptuous mouthfeel and a subtle oak flavor. On the nose, expect aromas of citrus zest, crushed rock, honeysuckle, and ripe lemon. On the palate, flavors of lemon cream, lively pineapple, and green apple mingle with hints of stone fruit. The acidity is bright and the finish is lengthy and balanced.
