jeb dunnuck logo 250"Another terrific value brought in by Kysela is the 2017 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc, which saw a little bit of skin maceration and six months on lees in tank. Beautiful lime, mint, and flinty minerality all emerge from this medium-bodied, vibrant, pure white that offers plenty of character. It leans toward the racy end of the spectrum yet has good texture. Drink it over the coming year or two.”
