Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley

Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: Our 2004 Sauvignon Blanc is 80% barrel fermented and 20% stainless steel fermented, giving this wine its bright fruit. The wine’s aroma is an intriguing combination of ruby grapefruit, sweet grass and pineapple with hints of floral perfume. The forward fruit and zesty acid in this wine make it a perfect accompaniment to such foods as Dungeness crab, oysters on the half shell or Asian and Thai foods.

Varietal Definition
Sauvignon Blanc:
Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California — at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety — and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’. When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the wine world’s darlings. Steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character characterize dry wines made from this grape.
