    Default 2008 Quintessa Illumination Sauvingon Blanc

    I'm at our place on Marco Island Florida for the winter and a friend
    sent me a bottle of 2008 Quintessa Illumination SB. I wasn't aware
    that Quintessa even made a Sauvignon Blanc. Pale gold in color almost
    colorless. Nose of citrus fruits and flowers. Very forward
    grapefruit flavors on the palate with a finish of bright acidic lemon
    juice. Best with food. "B"

    Rather simple sounding for such an iconic winery. Didn't know they made this either. I assume this is one of their biodynamic wines.

    Not sure if it's biodynamic but it's fermented in concrete eggs.
    Newest rage in SB making in Napa.
