94 Points, Gold Medal - 2019 North Coast Wine Competition
Pure, Ripe, & Exhilarating! The nose begins with crisp exotic fruits, green apple, tart pear backed by white flowers and a hint of vanilla. The mouth is layered with ripe pear, stone fruits, and guava with focused bright citrus, lemon, grapefruit, creme brulee and a satisfying mineral finish.
This is a delicious, pure, and a ripe expression of Sauvignon Blanc from California's Alexander Valley AVA. Great structure and complexity. Pair with light to medium dishes like shrimp scampi or cacio e pepe.
At Reynoso, all work is done by hand: from leaf-pulling and green drop, to harvesting into half-ton bins. Once the growing season is over, the fruit is gently crushed into half ton bins, where they undergo a slow, cool fermentation. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were hand-picked at 22.8 Brix and barrel fermented with wild yeast showcasing the best of the best of the Reynoso Estate. 100% stainless steel fermentation to maintain beautiful aromatics. As with many of their wines, Reynoso is inspired by the great wine-growing regions of France, where minimal manipulation allows the elegance of the terroir to be most fully expressed.
