2013 Vogelzang Birdsong Sauvignon Blanc (Wine Spectator Score: 89)
2013 Vogelzang Birdsong Sauvignon Blanc
The 2013 Birdsong Sauvignon Blanc is all fresh aromatics of spring flowers, bright citrus and flinty minerality. We added a Stelvin cap along with a 75% steel tank fermentation process that promotes the youthful fruit and keeps the palate light and approachable. This combines with 25% 6-year Chardonnay oak-barrel fermentation treatment to add a smooth mouthfeel and silky roundness to the texture of the wine.
Stylish and refreshing, this is floral up front, with orange blossom and honeysuckle notes, followed by a crisp core of lemon, green apple, mineral and yellow raisin flavors.
