This is an impressive Sauvignon Blanc. I misplaced and lost track of three bottles in the cellar and glad I did. It is just now coming into its own.
Medium deep gold. Very bright. Hard to pin this one down immediately as Sauvignon Blanc. No gooseberry, no cat piss, no passion fruit. Oh, but there is a twist of grapefruit along with peachy qualities. More like Pouilly Fume than Sancerre and very well done. Deep running fruit concentration that keeps your interest all through the meal.
I've heard good things about the Randle Hill Vineyard. Bink Vineyards also uses grapes from this vineyard for their highly regarded Sauvignon Blanc. Both Yorkville and Bink are located on the highway that runs through the Anderson Valley. But, interestingly, neither winery has the right to use the Anderson Valley appellation; the grapes rather come from the nearby Yorkville Highlands. Anderson Valley is a special appellation for Pinot Noir and Alsace varietals. For Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah, I like what I have tasted from the Yorkville Highlands. Wish I had more Randle Hill Sauvignon Blanc.
