Castell d’Encus Taleia Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2011

$59.00
"More of the 2011 Taleia was fermented in the so-called “rock fermenters” than the 2010, and it was bottled the day before tasting. Consequently the nose is tight and unyielding, although it certainly has fine minerality. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with hints of fresh grapefruit and nectarine, while it seems less malic than the 2010. That comes through on the palate, which has fine delineation and a very elegant, stony finish with hints of white peach and nectarine on the aftertaste." 92 Points, Neal Martin, www.RobertParker.com
