One of the first 2020's I have tried and this is a beauty. Aged in 47% stainless steel, 25% used French barrels, 22% concrete egg, and 6% New French oak Puncheon.  This gives it multiple dimensions.  Light green/gold in color, clear and bright.  On the nose, there is a bit of a grassy note but just enough to let you know it's Sauvignon Blanc.  With some air, a quince quality comes out that is very nice.  Medium bodied with a very nice, slightly oily texture.  On the palate, there is a bit of pear and then a streak of chervil that is more herbal than green if that makes sense.  At the mid-palate, peach comes out in a big way and then more lemony on the finish.  This is refreshing and crisp with good acidity.  A long finish.  Right now, this is of course young, but it seems like this should develop over the next five years and drink well for a few more after that.  The fruit and acidity at the moment drink very well on its own.  It will work well with lighter meals and be great with Spaghetti Aglio e Olio.
