Winemaker's Notes

This fresh and lively Sauvignon Blanc was produced from Santa Barbera and Monterey County fruit; 55% from our estate vineyard Los Alamos. The remainder was sourced from select Monterey County growers. These growing regions, located on the south central coast of California are maritime-influenced, producing elegant and distinctive wines.

Montevina's 2003 Sauvignon Blanc offers classic cool climate characters distinguished by fresh, bright melon, lemon, and grapefruit flavors balanced by a light grassy note. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied and round in texture with a long, dry, spicy finish. This food-friendly style is an excellent accompaniment to lighter fish, chicken, and pasta dishes, as well as mildly-spiced ethnic cuisines such as Asian and Latin

To enhance the fresh, crisp aromas and flavors, the wine was cold fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, with no barrel aging. It displays lively, bright citrus and melon characters typical of the best coastal Sauvignon Blancs.
