2018 Tiradora Sauvignon Blanc
90 points - Vinous
Classic Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc (90%) with a dollop of Semillon (10%), this wine jumps from the glass aromatically offering white grapefruit, Bosc pear, lychee, citrus blossom, kefir lime leaf, white pepper, lemon grass, and ginger. The palate has tension and cut with some richness from the addition of Semillon, with stunning balance throughout. Fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and neutral French oak barrique for 6 months.
