2020 Betelgeuse Sauvignon Blanc

  • Tasting Notes

    Eye
    Sparkling yellow gold & warm summer sun with a tinge of vibrant chartreuse.

    Nose
    Fever grass and lemon grass with notes of guava, lychee, and honeydew melon. Time in the glass reveals Asian pear, wildflower honeycomb, limestone dust, and subtle saline.

    Palate
    Bright and crisp with ultra-fine tannins. Mouthfeel like washed silk, but make it liquid.

    Cellar life
    Drink now through 2023.

    Betelgeuse is an icebreaker, a spirit lifter, and an elegant addition to your dining table, picnic basket, or poolside party. It is especially brilliant during the summer months but shines brightly year-round. This is the perfect starter wine in both senses of that term — whether for newcomers to the world of wine or seasoned enthusiasts looking for a well-made yet affordable aperitif to kick off any meal or gathering with panache.
