Sauvignon Blanc 2020
$30 / Bottle (750ml)
An early-ripening aromatic variety, Sauvignon Blanc is a natural fit for our estate vineyards in the cool climate of the Oak Knoll District. This thoughtfully made small-lot wine reflects not only our land and the vintage, but also our restraint in the cellar and our quest for balance and brightness in our wines.
The growing season began early after a very dry winter that included only half of our typical rainfall. The summer was sunny and pleasant, our warmest since 2003, and the harvest began a few weeks earlier than usual. The white wines from this vintage feature concentrated flavors and our signature brightness on the palate.
Fresh and bright, this wine delivers layered aromas of pineapple, kiwi, and passion fruit with hints of fresh herbs. Medium-bodied and balanced, the palate features vibrant acidity, carrying the delicious fruit flavors through to a mouthwatering finish.
The bright acidity of this Sauvignon Blancs makes it an ideal wine for pairing with seafood and white meats. Winery Chef Chris Kennedy says it accentuates the taste of the sea and suggests enjoying this wine with our Spicy Tuna Poke recipe.
