    Winemaker Notes

    Again this year I utilized a number of vineyard sites as a blending strategy to enable me to present classic Marlborough terroir. The blend is a seamless layering of grapes from diverse sites in the Wairau River Valley. Depending on exposure and soil structure, which ranged from rocks and pebbles to sand and clay, the different lots contributed citrus, lemon zest, nettles, pineapple-tropical fruit, and white currant, with a touch of minerality.

    Suggested Food Pairings:
    "Vibrant flavors in this sauvignon work well with aromatic foods – even those that are acidic and spicy. It's a natural with fresh fish and shellfish in a wide range of preparations, from sushi to grilled, poached or richly sauced. Bridge ingredients – such as herbs, capers, green olives, curries, sour cream, goat cheeses, and citrus 'squeezes' – connect this multifaceted sauvignon to a wide range of seafood and poultry."
    - Chef John Ash

    Sauvignon Republic
    The men involved in Sauvignon Republic (John Buechsenstein, John Ash, Paul Dolan and Tom Meyer) are committed to becoming experts on Sauvignon Blanc and producing it around the world in the best locations. All four men are passionate about this grape.

    Sauvignon Blanc is a grape variety that expresses "terroir" (the place that it is grown) more profoundly than almost any other grape variety. California, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile and France are the locations where it has shown greatness. Sauvignon Republic intends to produce a wine in each area. It will allow them to promote and share the unique flavors that each location provides.

    Food styles and flavors have changed profoundly in recent years. Asian, Hispanic and Indian flavors and techniques are being widely embraced by both chefs and home cooks. European and Mediterranean flavors of course will continue to be a part of "American" food but the increasing influence of these new cuisines is having a profound impact on wine choices. Sauvignon Blanc has the unique ability to wrap itself around all of these new flavors and cuisines.

    Monterey

    View all wine

    A geographic and climatic anomaly among wine regions, Monterey is a part of the expansive Central Coast AVA and contains five smaller sub-appellations, including the popular Santa Lucia Highlands. Rainfall is extremely low, necessitating the use of irrigation from the Salinas River for successful grape-growing, while harsh Pacific winds and coastal fogs drastically cool and dampen the region in the north.

    In the cooler districts of Monterey, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling produce wines with a crowd-pleasing combination of ripe, juicy fruit and crisp acidity. Warmer subzones are home to fleshy, fruit-forward Bordeaux Blends comprised primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

    Chardonnay

    View all wine

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

    In the Glass

    When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

    Perfect Pairings

    Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

    Sommelier Secret

    Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
