Double Gold Medal – S.F. Chronicle Wine Competition - 2016
This enticing Sauvignon Blanc offers aromas of white peach, cantaloupe, and orange blossom complemented by bright citrus notes of lemon curd and zest. Tropical flavors of kiwi, pineapple, lemon, mango and papaya introduce a rich palate and a persistent mineral finish. A great aperitif, this pairs nicely with just about any seafood dish, and is a great companion with hard cheeses.
The 2014 Somoma County vintage was sourced from a small high-end producer located in the eastern slop of the Sonoma Valley known as Fallenleaf Vineyard. This vineyard possesses unique varietal character that showcases the essence of a "Sonoma County" Sauvignon Blanc.
Grapes were picked in the early morning hours, and went immediately to press and chilled to preserve freshness. The grape juice was immediately inoculated with yeast and nutrients to finish the primary fermentation in tank and hand selected neutral French Oak barrels at carefully controlled temperatures.
Appellation: Sonoma County
Vineyard Location: Fallenleaf Vineyard, Sonoma Valley
Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
pH: 3.16, TA: 7.0 g/L
