Wine Notes
“The 2021 Illumination is a fresh and fragrant wine, with an intensity of flavor and compelling texture and drive. Notes of grapefruit, Meyer lemon, and white peach provide tension, while botanical floral aromas of orange blossom, quince, lemongrass, and thyme bring complexity and interest. A bright and lively mouthfeel, with flavors of citrus, hints of elderflower, and a medium-bodied, layered, and persistent finish.”
Vintage Notes
“The 2021 growing season is one of both extreme conditions and excellent quality. A second year of low rainfall resulted in drought conditions that were thankfully mitigated by a mild spring and summer. The vines responded to the drought with smaller canopies and lower yields, while the temperate season allowed the fruit to slowly ripen and develop concentration of flavor while retaining bright acidity. The harvest began on August 18th with perfectly balanced Sauvignon Blanc Musque on the Quintessa Estate and concluded on September 14th with rich and textured Semillon.”
93 Points Wine Enthusiast Sublime texture imprints this delightful, serious wine, floral in gardenia aromas and orange blossom. A bright, lengthy acidity supports mouthwatering flavors of Meyer lemon, tangerine and wild Tahitian vanilla, combining effortlessly on the palate to wow and refresh.”
