Wine Enthusiast
A flinty, herbaceous aroma leads to nicely layered flavors of citrus, ginger and limestone in this complex, subtle and fascinating wine. Nervy acidity braces the ample herb and fruit flavors for an especially energized mouthfeel. (October 2023)
OB 94
Owen Bargreen
The 2022 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc has 2% Semillon blended in and comes from mainly vineyards in Napa County, with roughly 40% coming from Sonoma County sites. The nose is brilliant right now with pink grapefruit blossom, lime zest and salted cashew nut notes. The palate is fresh and viscous with a seamless texture and great sense of weight, as well as underlying tension. This is absolutely delicious stuff to consume now, as this 2022 bottling has some good aging potential as well. ( June 22, 2023)

Wilfred Wong
The 2022 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc is one of the world's finest examples of this grape variety; it has been one of my favorites. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of ripe melon, hints of dried herbs, earthy notes, and hints of oak. Serve it with grilled, panko-coated Petrale sole, and enjoy. (Tasted: June 15, 2023, San Francisco, CA)
