Rickshaw Sauvignon Blanc 2017
The 2017 Rickshaw Sauvignon Blanc is a nice blend of tropical notes with hints of bright citrus, crisp aromatics of nectarine, white peach, and melon form in the glass. Flavors of meyer lemon, tart apple, and mint mingle on the palate with pleasant accents of guava and pineapple.

The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredible range of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from tiny, family-owned boutiques to massive corporations, and price and production are equally varied.

The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône Blends blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with cool climate varieties such as Pinot noir, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, any wine lover will find something to get excited about here.
