- Glen Manor Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Product #31061 (In Stock)
As we've said for years, the best SB in the state here.
"The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is unoaked, bone dry and comes in at 13.8% alcohol. Sourced from 20-year-old vines, it had no malolactic fermentation. Glen Manor was my favorite Virginia Sauv Blanc producer on my first look at VA wines. This is no different. It is serious Sauv Blanc, focused and penetrating, with all of those veggie notes on the finish, a hint of asparagus and broccoli. Yet, it does manage to keep it under control and it is also elegantly crafted. If you're a Sauv Blanc hater--yes, I can't believe those exist, either!--you won't like it. But others will find this beautifully crafted, solid, fresh and appropriately pungent. There is less grass on the nose than green on the palate. That's the style. It is very fine in that style. I really liked the winery's reds this issue, the best group I've seen. This is arguably still their best wine and one of Virginia's best Sauvignon Blancs."Wine Advocate 91 points
