2018 MEHALE, SAUVIGNON BLANC, MONTEREY
93 Pts. Martin Sheehan-Stross,
We do not see too much Sauvignon Blanc coming out of Monterey, but this particular bottling makes me think that should change. It is driven by citrus but is anything but tart. Notes of mandarin, ruby grapefruit, and key lime pie dominate the palate. There is also a distinct caraway seed tone that is reminiscent of a nice white Bordeaux. Medium-bodied, with a long, slightly saline finish. This is perfect for a day spent along the coast.
M: is for marvelous, how others see you.
E: is for expressive, not one to hold within.
H: is for hope, the encouragement you give.
A: is for accord, the harmony you spread.
L: is for life, that you live so well.
E: is for elate, you make others happy.
