Winemaker's Notes:

This High Elevation Collection Sauvignon Blanc is a clean, light straw color. It has aromas of lemon citrus, tropical fuits and flavors of citrus, tangerine, and lemongrass. It's crisp, has nicely balanced fullness, and a lingering finish.
My Notes:

About Shannon Ridge:

Shannon Ridge is dedicated to crafting luscious, fruit-driven wines that express the distinct characteristics of fruit grown in the high valley region of Lake County, California. Family-owned and operated, Shannon Ridge was founded in 2001. About Our Vineyards
Our vineyards hug the mountain rims along the south-east edge of High Valley AVA. Surrounded by dramatic landscapes and pristine wilderness, the story of High Valley is clearly visible from our property. At 2,200 feet, on top of the Terre Vermeille vineyard look to your south, you'll see the deep blue waters of Clear Lake, that provide cooling winds throughout our long summer days. Turn to the west, and you can distinguish where the lava flows give way to the alluvial fan of the ancient lake bed on the valley floor. And from the north, and you can feel the cold night winds from Snow Mountain and the peaks of the Mendocino National Forest.
