Product Description

The 2015 Avennia Oliane Sauvignon Blanc delivers a bright nose of lemon, peach, vanilla honey, fresh straw, and a fresh note of limestone minerality. The palate features notes of citrus, nectarine, more limestone, and hints of peavine and grilled bread. It is richly textured with a brilliant acid backbone, making it a perfect match for seafood and more. This wine is drinking great now, but will also last 3-5 years in the cellar.

91 Points - Vinous Media
"Pale yellow. Hints of ripe peach, honeysuckle, resin and minerals on the nose. On the palate, concentrated citrus peel and tropical fruit flavors are complicated by a mineral component from Red Willow and intensified by bracing acidity. This rather powerful Sauvignon Blanc will need another 9 to 12 months to release its minerality. Chris Peterson described the 2015 vintage as "merely early, not weird." He did not correct the alcohol or acidity (other than the partially blocked malo, of course), and the pH here is 3.15." -ST, July 2016

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"I always love this cuvee from Chris, and the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Boushey Vineyard Oliane is no exception. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc (Boushey and Red Willow Vineyards) aged mostly in neutral oak (on lees), it had 15% of the blend aged in concrete eggs and 8% in new barrels. Lychee, citrus blossom, mint and some exotic notes all emerge from the glass and it's crisp, lively and pure on the palate." -JD, June 2017

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"A blend of fruit from top sites Boushey (60%) and Red Willow, the aromas are light, with notes of straw, lemon pith and grapefruit. The flavors show an elegant styling, framed by a tart zing of acidity that stretches out the finish. It's all about nuance. -SS, 2/1/17
