 "This wine is densely packed, hiding its stony, citrusy acidity deep in its own recesses. That initial reticence gives way to nectarine and wildflower scents in the finish, suggesting this will open more fully in six months."

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.”
