Pleasure, pleasure and more pleasure that you should share as this comes in a magnum-sized bottle.

Staff Pick Notes

Grab your bathing suit, a smash ball & racket, and an oversized pair of sun glasses because you're about to experience paradise in your mouth! This wine is so amazing that I need to tell the world. I have to shout it from the mountain tops and let the people of the world know what the they are missing! This bottle is the cats- meow; a life-altering, mind-blowing experience. This is the kind of bottle I am shipping to my people across the USA because they need it in their lives, THEY NEED IT! This wine reminds me of studying abroad in Australia and discovering passion fruit. This is passion fruit water but no residual sugar, delicious, sustainable, beautiful, elegent, life giving, happy tear drop, crisp, uplifting, dreamy passion fruit water!

(It’s a somewhat odd way of pointing out herbaceousness in the wine.) Cat pee aside, Sauvignon Blanc (sometimes called "Fumé Blanc" in California) is a bit of a chameleon in terms of style, and quite...
