Winemaker's Notes:

Clean and crisp flavors of grapefruit, citrus and green apple typify this refreshing wine. Exceptionally well balanced and integrated, this Sauvignon Blanc is a benchmark for true varietal character. In keeping with an emphasis on quality, Buena Vista recognizes the importance of growing fruit in appellations best suited for each varietal. Lake County vineyards provide the optimum growing conditions to produce fruit with the desired flavor profile for Buena Vistas Classics Sauvignon Blanc.

About Buena Vista Winery:

Founded in 1857 as California's first premium winery, Buena Vista, under the direction of winemaker Jeff Stewart, is a leader in cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah. Straddling Sonoma County in the southern end of the Carneros appellation, the 523-acre Ramal Vineyard Estate is broken up into 167 small blocks, with 21 different clones of Chardonnay and 13 different clones of Pinot Noir, and is set along rolling south-facing hillsides overlooking the San Pablo Bay. The Ramal Vineyard is the crown jewel of all Carneros.

Most winemakers will agree that cool-climate wines like Pinot Noir are the most difficult to produce. And most will agree that Jeff Stewart does so with unparalleled success. Jeff comes to Buena Vista with over 15 years of achievement in cool-climate viticulture and his focus on gentle handling of the grapes and temperature moderation produces wines with complexity, character and depth.
