The Passel Estate 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is drinking ever more beautifully. A little more time has allowed the complex notes to really shine, while retaining the wine’s elegant fragrance and crispness on the palate.
We have only a few cases left before we must save the last for our museum reserves. This is a rare opportunity for Passel Estate Sauvignon Blanc lovers to purchase these final bottles of the 2017 vintage at an amazing price before it is no longer available to the public and the 2018 vintage is released.

“This is a sauvignon blanc that makes you reach for the bottle to pour yourself another glass (or so). It is intense and racy, but relies on fruit, not just acidity to provide its energy. Each taste reveals more, with white fruits, sugar snap peas and lemon.”

”Boasting expressive aromas of passion fruit and pink grapefruit enriched by a subtle layer of French oak (20% was barrel fermented, although the wine aged in stainless steel), the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is a medium-bodied wine with a precise, laser-like finish. It’s ripe enough to avoid the herbal excess of the variety, yet it remains tightly focused and crisp.”
