Kinfolk Sauvignon Blanc 2018 | Britt Nichols Secret Stash
Kinfolk Sauvignon Blanc 2018 presents a light, bright golden hue. Aromas of citrus and tropical fruit—Meyer lemon, grilled pineapple, papaya, and blood orange. While together leaping from the glass in a fresh and intriguing symphony. Across the medium-bodied palate, the tropical and citrus theme continues, revealing hints of kiwi, fresh green herbs, and grapefruit zest. A delicious value that will be a perfect, versatile “anytime” white for the next three years. Drink now – 2024.
Notably, Sauvignon Blanc with all the layers of Meyer lemon, grilled pineapple, papaya, and grapefruit zest. While cut through by hints of tarragon and wet-stone minerality, that you usually associate with $45 bottles. In addition, aromas of tropical fruit and fresh-cut grass.
Secret Source and Secret Sauce!
The source of this one, like all the Kinfolk wines, has to remain a secret. While coming from one of the most awarded, critically praised producers in all of Sonoma County…
Situated on a hillside in the most northern reaches of Dry Creek Valley. So this estate-grown Sauvignon Blanc is from a vineyard naturally irrigated by an underground spring giving the vines all the water they need and not a drop more. The fruit, as a result, is concentrated. Naturally packing a serious punch allowing it to age gracefully for years longer than most Sauvignon Blanc. Nearby redwood groves help moderate the temperature and provide a hedge against warm days, which means that the wine has as much ripe fruit as acidity. The tension between the two is striking, and far more typical of a wine that costs three or four times as much.
