Fritz Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc

Fritz Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: This version of Fritz Sauvignon Blanc is a special blend of two vineyards-our Estate Jenner Vineyard in the Dry Creek Valley and the Poplar Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Grapefruit, lemon and litchi aromas are followed by acacia, honey and essences of fresh cut Granny Smith apples. This wine is crisp, light, fresh and finishes delicately.

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.
