Wine Enthusiast: 94 Points

This wine's gorgeous floral aromas steal the show. Wave one hits with jasmine and those delightful Hawaiian puakenikeni flowers. Wave two includes coconut, chamomile, and fresh-cut grass. The wine's mouthfeel is crisp and brisk, with flavors like grapefruit and lemon curd spread on stroopwafels. —A.M.

Wine Advocate: 93+ Points

The 2021 Chaleur Blanc is made from 67% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Sémillon. The nose is oaky, fresh, and lifted with notes of yellow apples, sweet citrus, and a delightfully soft mineral essence. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is focused, balanced, and succulent with notions of lemon pastry cream and vanilla that sway with a delicate mineral tension. The wine concludes with a focused, fresh, and lingering finish. At $42 a bottle, this is perhaps one of the best Washington Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon blends in the market today. Just over 67,000 bottles were produced. This was almost all barrel fermented and barrel-aged, with 51% new French oak. Impressive. —M.A.
