Light aromas of Asian pear are cut by sharp, while pleasant, scents of cut grass on the nose of this bottling. There's a vibrancy to the fresh and bright palate, where green pear and grass flavors align. MATT KETTMANN

25% Semillon. Governed from beginning to end by slightly juicy well-ripened fruit that smacks of fresh melons and pears with a trim of vanillin richness, this fairly full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc takes a marked turn away from the grassy and herbaceous traits of which the variety can be prone. It inclines to slightly gylceriny lushness to start then shows just the right degree of structural firmness on the palate and with rich, long-lasting flavors that exhibit fine fruity volume and weight.

90pts Wilfred Wong
The 2021 DAOU Discovery Collection Sauvignon Blanc is appealing, delightful, and focused on its varietal character. This wine offers aromas and flavors of light spices, light floral notes, and sandalwood. Pair it with linguine and clams in a creamy white wine reduction sauce

Winemaker Notes

Quintessential varietal character abounds in our 2021 Sauvignon Blanc. Classic aromas of wet grass, pineapple, lemon chiffon and gooseberry are accented by hints of grapefruit, kiwi and lime. Subtle notes of lemongrass and green apple round out the layered and balanced nose. A crisp, zesty palate presents vibrant tropical flavors of pineapple, papaya and dragon fruit. The mouthfeel is full and round, offering secondary layers of melon and quince supported by a solid lemon-lime core. Notes of juicy pineapple, guava, citrus and green apple emerge on a clean, exuberant finish.
