Sauvignon Blanc - Block 4SB20

Sauvignon Blanc - Block 4SB20 Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: "A pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc. Grapefruit, passion fruit, and minerality are on full display. Unlike some Sauvignon Blancs, our Block 4SB20 doesn't hide its intense, distinctive aromas in Chardonnay-like oak and butter. It accepts that Sauvignon Blanc is all about gooseberry aromas, steely flavors, and intense character. On its own, or with a platter of oysters and grilled shrimp, Block 4SB20 will show you what Sauvignon Blanc is all about!" Tim Bell Winemaker

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.
