Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon

The fruit for the 2006 Provenance Rutherford Estate Sauvignon Blanc was hand picked and whole-cluster pressed to preserve the fruit and varietal character of the wine. Stainless steel barrel fermentation and sur lie aging allowed the yeast lees to be stirred, which adds textural richness to the finished wine. Using a small percentage of new oak barrels adds a subtle spicy note.

Provenance Estate Sauvignon Blanc reveals delightful aromas of tropical fruit, lychee and pear complemented by subtle mineral notes. On the palate, the wine shows bright flavors of lemon, pear, guava, cashew, tangerine and mineral. Round and creamy, yet with a vibrant finish, this is an ideal food wine. Enjoy it paired with fresh oysters, shrimp salad and fresh goat cheese.
