“Once again, this rare gem is one of America’s most elegant and refreshing collector-level Sauvignon Blanc; a guaranteed thriller! The luxurious 2021 Asatsuyu is remarkably fragrant from the alluring bouquet (fresh gardenias and honeysuckle) straight on through to the scintillating finish. A plethora of energetic grapefruit, Asian pear, lemongrass and white peach on the palate. What really sets this apart is how elegant and balanced it is, in contrast to many modern overly-oaked new world Sauvignon Blancs. This is an absolute pleasure to taste now and will be just as mouth-watering through 2026.” - California Wine Advisors
asatsuyu – “Morning Dew”
Asatsuyu is the only Sauvignon Blanc made by Heidi Barrett and the only white wine from Kenzo Estate. Its purity is the result of ideal ripeness and gentle winemaking. Crisp, rich and complex, true Sauvignon Blanc varietal character is on display in the Asatsuyu. Perfumes of citrus and peach segue to ripe flavors of honeydew, melon and guava. Thirst quenching acidity is framed by hints of minerality and soft undertones of sweet oak.
