Green-tinged straw. Strikingly pungent bouquet of pear, lemon, herbs and minerals, complicated by white flowers and anise. Impressively fresh and precise, showing tangy citrus zest and orchard fruit flavors and a sexy floral nuance. Dry and nervy on the finish, which leaves notes of candied lemon and honeysuckle behind. Tolmach told me that he paid $5,000 a ton for this fruit and that he normally pulls 2.5 tons per acre off his parcel of this vineyard but only got 1.5 in 2011. To put things into perspective, most California sauvignon blanc is cropped at 5 to 7 tons per acre, according to Tolmach.
