This Sauvignon Blanc is thoroughly refreshing, with aromas of guava, papaya and pear. These enticing characteristics are followed by vibrant citrus notes of grapefruit and lime on the palate, which enhance the wine’s juicy body and highlight its crisp, balanced acidity.
As we experienced with the preceeding several vintages in California, 2016 saw a mild winter and spring followed by an early bud break. A long and dry growing season allowed for the grapes to ripen evenly, reaching optimal flavor profiles. Predominantly sourced from Lodi, this Sauvignon Blanc was destemmed, crushed, and pressed shortly after harvest. The wine was then fermented and aged in stainless steel, providing a light, crisp body.
A suitable pairing for this Sauvignon Blanc is a light vegetable salad, an assortment of aged cheeses, mild white fish or roast chicken with a simple, classic marinade.
