Jackson Estate Kelsey Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Volcanic influence from Mount Konocti creates well-drained vineyards rich in black obsidian and quartz crystal.  The diverse elevations and mountain climate conditions lead to low humidity and large temperature fluctuations - hot days to cold nights, allowing for good acid retention during ripening.

Acclaim

90 points, Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast, Oct 2021

Fruit-bowl aromas from apple to pear and a hint of banana give this wine a friendly start, while more reserved Bosc pear and mineral flavors are backed by tangy acidity, keeping it balanced and appetizing as it opens up in the glass.
