Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc

Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: "The 2007 Magnolia Lane is stunning. Take a sniff and be rewarded with a blast of passion fruit, guava, and grapefruit aromas. There's no stopping now - take a sip and wonder if you haven't landed in paradise. Have your oyser knife ready! But if mollusks aren't for you, match this Sauvignon Blanc with platters of grilled shrimp and plenty of lime. It's a guaranteed good time!" Tim Bell Winemaker; Jennifer White Assistant Winemaker

Varietal Definition
Muscadine grape derivative with floral flavors used mainly to make sweet white wines in the South-East and Gulf states of the U.S..
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.
