Winemaker Notes
This enticing wine offers vivid flavors of pink grapefruit and white peach, as well as lovely notes of lemon zest and citrus blossom. On the palate, refreshing acidity mingles with a subtle undercurrent of sweet fruit that carries through to a bright and lively finish.
Production
The 2018 growing season began with a cool winter, and just enough rain to replenish the vineyards. A temperate spring followed by mild weather throughout the summer allowed the grapes to ripen at a very measured pace, something we love to see in our vineyards. After several years of early harvests, the relatively mild weather and a healthy sized crop led to a return to more normal harvest times. After enjoying abundant hangtime to fully ripen, the quality of the grapes was extremely impressive. Overall, our 2018 whites and Rosé show an ideal combination of lovely fruit-forward flavors and elegance, while the reds are lush and complex, with great color and concentration.

Nice balance of dry/sweet, ripe fruit. Like the nose very crisp. Paired well with sushi.

A solid California Sauvignon Blanc start to finish, showing off smells and flavors of honeydew melon, papaya, lemon-lime and lemongrass. Pleasing tang of acidity in the mouth and a finish that fleshes out, leaving you with lemon zest garden herbs on the finish.

Decoy's umbrella-winery Duckhorn knows a thing or two about making premium Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. As a premium-value label, Decoy aims to delivery exceptional value. It sets up to bring us an exceptional $20 bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, You'd be well-served to keep a stash of this wine for pop-in guests and weekday fish nights. It is 100% Sauvignon Blanc, cold fermented and aged in stainless steel tank.
