Osawa Prestige Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Stonefruit and tropical aromas, shrouded in gun smoke and struck match tones the palate that is rich with leesy, barrel fermentation characters that add texture and complexity. The wine is vibrant with pineapple and guava flavors and a generous, long soft finish.

$40.50

“Osawa make very smart wines at very smart prices and this one over delivers. The peachier side of Sauvignon Blanc with grapefruit, and some tropical fruits. A full, rich, powerful wine with a bit of spice.” – Cameron Douglas, MS
