Winemaker's Notes:

Number 9 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

This Sauvignon Blanc is made entirely from Hanna Winery's 50-acre Slusser Road Vineyard. The wine emphasizes fruit in the aromas and mid palate with a finish broadened by malolactic fermentation. It's fresh and quaffable with distinctive lime, grass and a murmur of basil.

Recently, Wine & Spirits tasted over 166 American Sauvignon Blancs - this was their number one pick out of all of them, rated a whopping 93 points! Hanna is something of a Sauvignon Blanc specialist, and it really shows in this wine.

"This wine has the Pacific cool of the Russian River Valley and a lovely pearlike flavor set in a generous texture..."

About Hanna Winery:

Hanna Winery was founded in 1985 by Dr. Elias Hanna, a world-renowned cardiac surgeon, who was eager to find a place in the country to continue the farming heritage of his upbringing in Syria. In the 1970s he realized his dream with the purchase of 12 acres in the Russian River Valley. Dr. Hanna’s oldest daughter, Christine, now runs the operations of the winery. Hanna owns 600 acres of land in the Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and the Mayacamas Mountains, 250 of which are planted.

Under Christine Hanna’s guidance, the winery has evolved into an estate philosophy that blends the viticultural diversity of fruit cultivated in its four vineyard estates in three unique appellations. With the help of winemaker Jeff Hinchliffe, they craft award-winning wines, such as its Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc and Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
