Straw green color. Earthy aromas and flavors of kiwi-plum puree, melon rind, white peppercorn, and bit of grass and straw with a supple, soft, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a graceful, interesting, medium-length finish imparting impressions of white strawberry, nectarine skin, and pepper and dill with fine, fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A very nicely polished, elegant style of Sauvignon Blanc that will make a fine sipper.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is a bit of a chameleon of a variety, as it changes its character depending on where it is grown. Most famously in France’s Loire Valley, (especially in Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre), it is a rich dry white with distinct herbal notes in the nose and on the palate. In New Zealand, the flavors range from gooseberry to tropical; both styles have very good natural acidity. Certain areas in Chile also produce very tropical-driven examples with a touch of herbal character, while the typical California style is clean with melon and spearmint fruit with only traces of herbal notes.

Many styles of Sauvignon Blanc – especially those from New Zealand – are aged in steel tanks to preserve the aromatic qualities, while some producers in Sancerre or even in California age in wooden barrels; this for added texture and spice. Medium-full in body, Sauvignon Blanc is especially excellent paired with shellfish or seafood or lighter poultry with herbs.
