A pale golden-yellow color with green tints.
An expressive, powerful nose dominated by white flowers and grapefruit aromas. On the palate it is full and well-balanced with a nice freshness and good acidity. Clean, crisp and dry finish.

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Quincy Blanc is all Sauvignon brought up in tank, seeing no oak whatsoever. This beautifully layered, mineral-laced white offers classic Loire notes of green citrus, earth, and crushed rocks. With good acidity and a layered texture, it’s well worth seeking out and is going to shine on the dinner table."
