    Winemaker Notes

    This single vineyard Sauvignon displays lifted aromas of citrus and passion fruit. It has a well balanced palate with wonderful richness that is bursting with flavors of red currants and gooseberries. The finish has a lovely citrus minerality that lingers on and on.

    Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
