Wine of the week: 2011 Elizabeth Spence Sauvignon Blanc

October 18, 2012 

Lo and behold: a sharp and bright sauvignon blanc that dares to leave the realm of grapefruit and gooseberry -- its acids clean, its midpalate juicy and full. The aromatics remain of interest, too: citrus, flowers and a background of herbs. Who has created this vinous masterpiece? Why Elizabeth Spence, of course -- which is not one person, but two. Together they have created sublime and personal wines. Seek out and find their 2011 Sauvignon Blanc, currently available in restaurants and stores. Costs about $15.
