2013 Vinoce Lori's Lucky Penny Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley
The 2013 Lori's Lucky Penny Sauvignon Blanc opens with exquisite aromas of crisp white stone fruits and flintiness. Gentle swirling brings out the bright citrus notes and hints of passion fruit. The wine enters the palate with white nectarine, wet stone and lemon oil, a signature of Lori's Lucky Penny. The high-acid fruit profile is flawlessly balanced by the rich texture given from the tightest grain water-bent barrels. This unique stave bending method allows us to let the fruit shine while still adding brilliant texture and complexity. This is French oak integration at its very finest.
