The 2022 Ehlers Estate Sauvignon Blanc is a pale-yellow wine with super intense aromas of peach, citrus, grapefruit, honeydew melon, vanilla, and white flowers. Mouthfeel is pleasantly velvety despite the tart acidity in the long finish. Freshly cut grass, lemon tart, orange candy, and lime zest, with some tropical peachy finish. Great mouthfeel and complexity, but vibrant acidity.
The 2021 Ehlers Estate Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley is a medium yellow wine with intense aromas of stone fruit, Meyer lemon, anise, and guava. High acidity but silky mouthfeel due to the lees aging, flavors of cherimoya, mango, and lemon zest fill the mouth with some ginger. Very long, it leaves long-lasting flavors of the fruit and some spices.
The wine exhibits dusty aromas of dark and red berries, dry herbs, and spices in deep dark garnet. Black pepper and cedar, with hints of cherries, round out the nose. The first sip is earthy, mineral with pencil shaving and dust. Blueberries and dark chocolate accompany the long after taste.
