Winemaker's Notes

To create a light, fresh Sauvignon Blanc that displays intense fruit flavors and exceptional balance, grapes were sourced from three different appellations. Grapes from Napa give juicy tropical fruit flavors, the Alexander Valley fruit provides a solid backbone of citrus, while Mendocino grapes contribute to the luscious aromatics of the Diamond Sauvignon Blanc. To keep this varietal bright and refreshing, the wine is fermented and finished exclusively in stainless steel.

Appearance: Pale straw

Aromas: Pink grapefruit, tropical fruit, and fig

Flavors: Summer melon, lemongrass and a hint of gooseberry

This SB has a little more floral notes up front than I'm used to, but it smooths out nicely with some fruit and acidity on the back end. I've had other SBs that I prefer at this price point, but it's a solid value nonetheless.
