The 2020 vintage in France’s Loire Valley showed exceptional yields. The rainy season was followed by a hot, dry summer which concentrated the sugars and acidities. It was an early harvest, with the ripeness of the grapes evolving very quickly to give ripe juices. Wines from 2020 have balanced, aromatic profiles with notes of citrus fruits and lemon.
A wine that encompasses freshness from start to finish, the 2020 Olema Sauvignon Blanc shows great aromatics of bright tropical fruit and green apple. On the palate, pineapple and citrus flavors carry through a mouth-tingling acidity laced with wintergreen and spearmint that carries through the long, zippy finish.
