Winemaker's Notes:

The combination of the two distinct clones delivers a very complex flavor profile. Clone 1 provides the traditional profile of citrus and lends to the high acidity. The Sauvignon Musque clone provides a depth of fruit flavors with a range of pear, fig and pineapple. The separated lot treatments are evident in the creamy character from the barrels and the varietal freshness and bright acidity of the tank-aged wine. Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is an ideal aperitif wine and a delicious companion to food including fresh or grilled seafood, particularly oysters, crab and lobster, along with grilled or broiled chicken dishes and a wide range of cheeses. Our inspiration for this wine comes from the unique Sonoma Coast and the opportunity to marry old and new world winemaking practices, resulting in a truly distinctive wine.
My Notes:

About Sonoma Coast Vineyards:

Sonoma Coast Vineyards produces handcrafted wines from the Extreme Sonoma Coast, a unique cold-climate growing area west of the Russian River Valley, a mere five miles from the Pacific Ocean, on the far western reaches of the Sonoma Coast Appellation. The potential for this region to produce wines of exceptional depth and complexity inspired founders John and Barbara Drady to join forces with acclaimed winemaker Anthony Austin and introduce their first vintage in 2002. Low yields of mature fruit with high levels of natural acidity, intense flavors and remarkable complexity result from the long, cool growing season, where harvests may extend into early November.
