“In the entire world there are only a few sounds that bring joy to all but the most jaded. One is the murmur of a kitten purring. Another is the thwack of a well-pitched baseball hitting a perfectly swung bat. And the third is the pop of a cork being pulled from a bottle of wine.” —George Taber

I have thoroughly enjoyed Calstar RRV Chardonnays and this offer has piqued my interest. Typically not into SB because of the common grassy notes. This mentions it, but I wonder how dominant it is. Tempted to go in just on reputation of the other Calstar bottlings I've had.

Acid is really high here, any RS for balance?

Interesting. Looks like this May peel the enamel right off my teeth. 3.1 ph and 8.8 acidity g/l.

I wonder how this compares to their 2010 SB ? That was exceptional. I've asked when they posted their Zin, if they would bring the SB here. Now it's here, I wonder how this year compares in style, etc...
Anyone ? Maybe Rick will stop by.

ETA:
OK I did some looking up to compare to my favorite.
The 2010:
Harvest 9/23/10
80% SS, 20% Neutral Oak
Alcohol 13.5
pH 3.25
TA 7.1 g/L
Bottled: 4/5/11
Release Date 9/1/11

When I asked Rick a year ago about bringing the SB to Woot he wrote:

Thanks for the compliment. Unfortunately for you, the SB is selling out within vintage regularly, so buying it you'll have to go to my website or a retailer that carries it.



I wonder if I can then infer that this means this isn't as wonderful as the past SB vintages.

I'll hold off on final decision to see if Rick stops by to comment.

There is a little RS to provide mouthfeel, but no percieved sweetness.

Okay forgot for a while to log on, sorry. This wine is the same vineyard and winemaking as the 2010. To try it has been to like it. the acid is high, but that is how I roll particularly on whites. You folks wanted to know when I'd bring SB to Woot. Well here it is.

This one like previous vintages is more about minerality than grass. Trying to split the difference between NZ and Sancerre.
