Caspar Estate New Release:
2018 Caspar Estate Sauvignon Blanc
The 2018 Season: 2018 was a near-perfect growing season started later than previous years, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and is coming to a close for a majority of wineries throughout the valley. Wines from the 2018 vintage are now quietly developing in cellars, and winemakers are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift it appears Mother Nature has given them.
2018 Caspar Estate Sauvignon Blanc Tasting Notes: Our first release of Caspar Estate Sauvignon Blanc, and it is an absolutely lovely wine. Right from the first scent is passion fruit and guava followed by notes of Meyer lemon and key lime. Delicate floral aromas remind you of Spring time in the garden. On the palate the wine is expressive with a rich silkiness a pure pleasure. The wine is layered with tropical fruits, with notes of melon and fresh citrus under tones. A subtle spice from the small time of oak aging adds just the right mouth feel to our estate wine. Tempting to drink now but will age for another 2 to 5 years.
