Sauvignon Blanc Aged Estate

Sauvignon Blanc Barrel Aged Estate Wine Details
Price: $29.90 per bottle

Description: This premier Deep Creek release is our first estate grown Sauvignon blanc release. Keeping our tradition of extended lees time, this wine explodes with aromas of apricot and vanilla accompanied by the smooth mouth-feel of pineapple and peaches. Fantastic with leafy herbs like coriander, basil, fennel and pineapple sage and terrific with lemon grass too.

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.
