Sauvignon Blanc

Sonoma Coast

 

Winemaker’s Notes

This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from cooler vineyards in the southern end of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The Hi-Vista vineyard in western Carneros and the Grossi vineyard north of Petaluma contribute spice and bright tangy acidity. The Leveroni vineyard south of Sonoma contributes the unique floral character of the Sauvignon “musque” clone. The resulting blend has a bouquet of nectarine and grapefruit zest, leading to lush fruit flavors of kiwi, lime and grapefruit. It finishes with a refreshing minerality and zesty acidity that makes it an ideal accompaniment to a wide range of soups, salads and shellfish dishes.

Points

“From the southern end of the cooler vineyards of the maritime-influenced Sonoma Coast, this exciting white shines with aromas of Mandarin orange taffy and honeysuckle. Aged sur lie for three months in neutral casks and partially tank fermented, personality rises out of the glass. Grapefruit peel, wet stone and high toned acidity take shape for a clean mouthfeel. Green apple, bread dough add to a spiced finish.”
