2022 Sauvignon BlancWhite Wine
A flagship wine of Maverick Estate Winery.
Exotic nose of guava, pineapple, sage and fresh mint. Beautiful complexity here that marries the pungent nose of Sauvignon Blanc fermented in stainless steel with the lovely baking spice notes of the brief barrel fermented components. The palate has a bright lime and star fruit quality and layers of pie crust and key lime pie notes. The oak and fruit intermingle to give a bit more weight to this otherwise very bright and refreshing white. Will age for a few years but hit its stride in the summer.
“This is a multidimensional Sauvignon Blanc offering texture and richness vis a vis a bright and tangy acidity! Stainless steel fermentation was used with a touch of barrel ferment. This exciting combination offers aromas of tropical fruits but also the traditional pink grapefruit and lime that you should expect from a good and complex Sauv Blanc. On the palate, flavours of passion fruit and pineapple come right before a hint of orange blossom, sweet citrus and green apple. The finish brings a hint of tartness, orange peel-like, and light spices, which add extra layers of complexity and a distinctive salinity to close out a sensational experience. Verdict: This is a FANTASTIC wine, putting the potential of this grape varietal in the South Okanagan on full display…. a real Maverick Classic. 92 points” – Carl’s Wine Club
