Winemaker's Notes:

This Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing. Fermentation in 100% temperature controlled stainless steel tanks maintain constant cool temperatures which allow us to showcase fresh fruit aromas and crisp bright flavors. We source grapes from warmer areas of the Valley for the grassier characteristics and blend with those from cooler sites, which give us bright tropical notes and flavors. Bright aromas papaya, citrus blossom, lemongrass with kiwi. Refreshing flavors of Meyer lemon, grapefruit. This wine has bright acidity, a round mouthfeel and crisp finish.

Food Recommendation: This stylish Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect companion to Dungeness crab cakes or a farm fresh platter of local fruit and Artisanal cheeses.
