Cypress Sauvignon Blanc

Cypress Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $10.00 per bottle

Description: Cypress Sauvignon Blanc is a bright and youthful brassy yellow green in color with racy fruit aromas of grapefruit, gooseberry, fresh herbs and dried flowers. Bright fruit flavors echo the aromas with a refreshing, palate cleansing acidity. Serve as an ideal accompaniment to salads with grapefruit and fennel or grilled seafood.

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.
