Winemaker's Notes

This Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of French and New Zealand styles, with true varietal characteristics. It highlights grapefruit, passion fruit, green apple and lemon, and has a good grassy structure of minerals and lively acidity. Fabulous with spicy foods like Thai and Mexican, this wine is my favorite with just plain goat cheese spread on crackers.

Owned and farmed by the Niven family, the Paragon Vineyard in the Edna Valley of California provides grapes for this wine. Originally planted in 1973, these are most likely the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines south of the North Coast. With the Pacific Ocean lying only four miles to the west, its influence creates one of the longest growing seasons in the state. As in the cool climates of both France and New Zealand, the grapes leisurely ripen, creating fruit of structured minerality and good acid backbone.
