deLorimier Sauvignon Blanc

deLorimier Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: A lightly perfumed aroma of spring blossoms and orchard fruit greets you first. Tingling citrus followed by ripples of pear and orange zest will refresh your palate. Soft and very fruit forward, this wine is all about the fruit, the whole fruit, and nothing but the fruit

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.
