This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from cool-climate vineyards in the southern end of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The Grossi vineyard north of Petaluma contributes spice and bright, tangy acidity. The Leveroni vineyard south of Sonoma adds the unique floral character of the Sauvignon “musqué” clone. The resulting blend has a bouquet of lemon and grapefruit zest, leading to lush fruit flavors of white peach, passion fruit, and honeydew melon. It finishes with a refreshing minerality and vibrant acidity that makes it an ideal accompaniment to a wide range of soups, salads, and shellfish dishes.
“An aromatic nose of apricots, peaches and Mediterranean herbs. Medium-bodied and rather concentrated and flavorful. Zesty acidity keeps the palate bright throughout. Pleasantly tart.”

Chef Kristine’s recommendation
Bright and vibrant, this wine has a long finish with good acidity. It’s wonderful when paired with French dishes and sauces – this wine just sings with rich recipes! Try with seafood, cream soups, some pates (rillettes), lemon thyme, thyme, roasted garlic, Chanterelle mushrooms, caramelized onions, and mild (or creamy!) Thai flavors such as coconut-based soups, or sauces with little or no heat.
