The fruit for our Sauvignon Blanc comes from the San Mateo Ranch Vineyard in Rutherford. This superb Sauvignon Blanc Vineyard is currently in the process of being converted to 100% organic farming. Warm days followed by cool nights characterize this region. The heavy clay soil present in the vineyard produces grapes of intensely perfumed tropical and citrus fruits with crisp acidity.
The 2009 Sauvignon Blanc displays classic varietal aromas, flavor and texture. Aromas of lemon peel, grapefruit and pineapple combine with a hint of spice and minerals, leading to a delightful combination of intense and exotic fruit flavors across the palate. The wine shows a lovely fullness in the palate from the skin contact before pressing and the lingering finish is bright and crisp.
"A beautiful Sauvignon Blanc, dry and crisp and low in alcohol. With no oak to interfere, it shows vibrant citrus fruit, guava, lemongrass and mineral flavors, balanced with zesty acidity. A beautiful, racy wine. "
