This 100% Sauvignon Blanc was made from grapes that were certified organic and Biodynamic at Grgich Hills' cool American Canyon and Carneros vineyards, not far from the San Francisco Bay. The wine's crisp, elegant flavors of passion fruit, lemon grass and a hint of minerality at the end of the long finish are perfect with a green salad topped by Chevre cheese, grilled seafood or sauteed chicken breast.
"Pale yellow. Orange blossom, grapefruit pith, nettles, white pepper and a pungent whiff of herbs. Brisk, lemony and penetrating, but with a leesy hint and saline minerality giving surprising pliancy to the middle palate. Finishes quite dry, with firm citrus zest and mineral notes. Not quite as long as the 2010 version but has plenty of personality."
