Winemaker's Notes:

Gold Medal Winner: 2014 Los Angeles International Wine Competition

Bright and refreshing, this Sauvignon Blanc opens with vivid aromas of citrus and tropical fruit. The gentle floral and herbal nuances - reminiscent of meadow wildflowers - are Sauvignon Blanc's signature. On the palate, passion fruit and grapefruit enliven the silky flavors and lead to a crisp, juicy finish.

This Sauvignon Blanc is a versatile wine, delicious with both delicate and spicy foods. Chill and then pour with appetizers, especially ones with an Asian flair. You'll find its fresh, citrus notes make a tangy complement to seafood and chicken salads, as well as to grilled white meats, pasta with pesto, and risotto primavera.

About Beaulieu Vineyard:

The deep roots of Beaulieu Vineyard were first planted back in 1900, when founder Georges de Latour noticed similarities with his native Bordeaux and declared the Napa Valley ideal for winemaking. Planting vineyards in Rutherford with grafted, phylloxera-resistent French vines, the Cabernet Sauvignon that de Latour crafted from these grapes gave the world a taste of California's promise as a world-class winemaking region. In 1938, de Latour hired the young Russian-French enologist, Andre Tchelistcheff. Today, Beaulieu continues to turn to innovative practices. Most recently, they completed a new state-of-the-art winery within one of their original buildings. The Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery utilizes the latest technology in combination with time-honored traditions for the production of this exceptional wine.
