From the bottle:
Napa Valley is known for producing world-class Sauvignon Blanc. Here, our flinty terroir forces our steely vines to root themselves deep into the earth in search of water and nutrients. The result is a wine led by bright aromas of grapefruit and honeysuckle with ripe tropical fruit flavors and a hint of lime.
It’s been too long since we’ve featured a Sauvignon Blanc here at Reverse Wine Snob. With so many different varieties of white wine out there we sometimes find ourselves overlooking the tried and true. Today’s pick was a great reminder why you should always have a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc chilled and ready to drink.
The 2016 Flint & Steel Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc begins with a very pleasant aroma of grapefruit, lime and honeysuckle. True to its name it also features a bit of a flinty mineral note. Taking a sip launches a tropical fruit fiesta in your mouth. Crisp and tasty grapefruit, kiwi and lime with touches of honey all combine with good acidity and a comforting mouthfeel to make this wine a pleasure to drink. Add in great balance and you’ve got an extremely tasty Sauvignon Blanc. It ends with an easy, satisfying finish of good length and some lingering tart tropical fruit.
This is one of those wines that’s hard not to take another sip of especially if you’re hanging out on the patio with friends. It grabs a well deserved spot on our list of The Best Sauvignon Blanc under $20!
