2018 Ballard Canyon 1NGREDIENT Sauvignon Blanc
A new release under our 1NGREDIENT label.
Winemaker Steve Beckmen tasted 1NGREDIENT wines over three consecutive days. Here are his thoughts on his initial vintage:
Day 1: Intense, complex aromas of mint, lemon verbena, candied lemon, and lime are very outgoing. The mouth is intense with good weight, good acidity, and firm tannins creating a juicy quality, with flavors of lemon, lime, grapefruit, and peppery spice. The finish is long and juicy with tart fruit and spices that linger. This is serious Sauvignon Blanc!
Day 2: The wine opened up to reveal more fruit than day 1 with apple, citrus, tarragon, white flowers, and mineral. Still intense but has mellowed a bit in the mouth with powerful structure, acid, and tannins framing the flavors of citrus fruits, spice, green apple, mineral, and saline finishing long and juicy. Really awesome on Day 2!
Day 3: Starting to fade just a bit and to show a little oxidation on the nose. The mouth is still fresh and alive although the intensity has mellowed. Seems best on Day 1 and 2 but still hanging in there on Day 3.
This wine should be consumed in the next 7-10 years.
