TASTING NOTES

This Sauvignon Blanc is a true expression of the influence of the Pacific Ocean breezes in Sonoma County’s grape growing region. Zesty and bright, the exceptional intensity of lemon zest, grapefruit, verbena, lemongrass and citrus blossoms aromatics are an impressive aperture to a gorgeous mouthfeel with centered acidity and a luscious finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Grilled fish, especially oily fish such as sardines and mackerel; garlicky prawns and chargrilled squid.

Fruit for our Sauvignon Blanc is grown primarily in the Russian River Valley and along the Sonoma Coast. The grapes are harvested at night and immediately sorted at the winery. After pressing, the juice settles overnight. The juice is then carefully transferred to neutral oak barrels and stainless steel tanks for fermentation, preserving the unique and intense aromatics of the varietal.
