|86||View from the Cellar||The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc from Trencalós is a good solid wine, but this particularly bottle was already getting a bit reductive and had a bit of over-cooked asparagus elements starting to poke through on both the nose and palate. With some aeration, this blows off a bit, but it is definitely not the grassy component of the varietal, but is from the closure. Eventually, once the reduction lifts a bit, the wine offers up a nose of grapefruit, lemon, salty soil tones and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, medium-full and bouncy, with a solid core and good length and grip on the balanced finish. The reduction hangs a bit longer on the backend than it does in the nose and I would drink this wine up pronto. 2019-2020.
