Silvery straw color. Aromas and flavors of hemp twine and carnation, waxy candle wick, dried apple and pear, and grapefruit peel with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a silky, medium-length finish with notes of green mango, jasmine, pear, and bruised yellow apple with fine tannins and no oak flavor. An earthy Sauvignon Blanc that will pair nicely with happy hours, weddings, and hors d’ouevres.

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.
