Santa Ynez Valley Honeysuckle Sauvignon Blanc

Santa Ynez Valley Honeysuckle Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $32.00 per bottle

Description: This indulgent Sauvignon Blanc is meant to be a bigger, richer more intense offering. Its fragrance is most enticing and its length on the palate is most rewarding. It ages incredibly well, and offers even greater elegance with some bottle age. It has delicious length on the palate, and it has persistent flavor memory. It is oily and creamy and silky and just tastes really good!

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.
Fermented beverage made with honey, water and yeast optionally with flavoring ingredients.
