Winemaker Notes

The 1997 Sauvignon Blanc includes a blend of 16% Semillon, which contributes rich melon-like qualities to the floral and herbal character of Sauvignon Blanc. After fermentation, half the wine went into French oak barrels where it was aged for 4 months. Winemaker Chuck Ortman used French oak from several coopers and forests to achieve a harmony of tasty aromas and flavors. The result is a wine with flavors of fresh melon and crisp apple, with a hint of oak. Suggested food pairings with Meridian Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc include chicken salad, pasta with cream sauce, sesame noodles, light pastas, raw oysters and veal piccata.

Meridian, Central Coast, California
Established in 1988, the Meridian Vineyards winery is located halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco in the relaxed town of Paso Robles, California. The label was founded in 1984 by veteran Winemaker Chuck Ortman, who spent the early part of his career as winemaker and consultant to several prestigious Napa and Sonoma wineries. Although the first Meridian wines were made from Napa fruit, Ortman was always intrigued by the emerging Central Coast growing regions of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, where vineyards in cool climates were yielding Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of phenomenal quality. When the opportunity was presented to develop Meridian's Santa Barbara vineyards and relocate to the Central Coast, Ortman eagerly accepted the challenge. Today, Chuck is still making the wines from vineyards owned and farmed by Meridian Vineyards in the Santa Barbara County, Edna Valley and Paso Robles appellations.
