Winemaker Notes

#31 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019Immediately deep, complex, and layered with a dominant citrus focus when the wine is first opened. White grapefruit, Key Lime, and a more subtle lemon meringue character all vie for attention. Subtle, yet classic, varietal grassiness emerges along with nuances of vanilla, woodsy spice, and creamy yeastiness. The palate is round and smooth, with viscosity counterpointed by refreshing, totally natural acidity. There is a seamless quality to this wine, where proportion and balance just flow from beginning to end.

Blend: 88% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Semillon

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A complex note of dried honeysuckle and a whiff of smoke add intrigue and depth to the core of succulent peach, melon and mango flavors, set on a medium body, with a fresh frame. Shows wonderful purity of fruit and nuances that linger effortlessly.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Alder Grove is scented of gooseberry, kiwi, cut grass and yellow peach with touches of slate and white flowers. Light to medium-bodied, it has a nicely rounded texture with zesty acidity and a long, flavorful finish. 1,370 cases produced.

Quivira Vineyards, California
Quivira Vineyards Winery Video

Family owned since its founding in 1981, proprietors Pete and Terri Kight were drawn to the estate’s

natural beauty and unspoiled rural character. With 63 acres of vines planted at Wine Creek Ranch, and

another 26 at two sites close by, today Quivira Vineyards is a leading producer of Zinfandel,

Sauvignon Blanc and Rhône varieties, with a reputation for intentional winegrowing and a thoughtful

commitment to organic farming.

Quivira’s environmental stewardship has been all-encompassing. Beginning in 1998, we partnered with

conservation agencies in restoring Wine Creek and Dry Creek for their native Steelhead and Coho

populations. We keep beehives to promote pollination of our garden’s genetically diverse produce

varieties and raise animals to provide fertilization material. It is our philosophy that the vines are only

as healthy as the entire ranch therefore we farm holistically and sustainably, and further our

commitment with each vintage.

Sonoma County, California

A multifaceted and highly reputable sub-region of Sonoma, Dry Creek Valley is responsible for a wide range of wine styles—both red and white. One of the smallest AVAs in California, Dry Creek Valley has a winning combination of ideal geography and climate. Fertile, well-drained soils create concentrated varietal character while long, warm days, bookended by cool nights, allow grapes to reach full phenolic ripeness and balance. The warm and welcoming appellation is home to a number of family-owned vineyards and wineries that place a strong emphasis on sustainable farming practices.

Zinfandel reigns supreme here and still produces in a great number of very old vineyards—often 100 years old or older. These old vines create a powerful, voluptuous and sultry wine unlike those of any other region. Sauvignon Blanc, the valley’s signature white grape, also performs exceptionally well. Many other varieties grow comfortably here, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah. Petite Sirah is often found in blends with Zinfandel.

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.
