Sauvignon Blanc Estate-Release Wine Details
Price: $24.90 per bottle

Description: Aromas of apricot and green apples accompanied by the smooth mouth-feel of pineapple and peaches. Sauvignon Blanc loves vegetables like tomatoes, capsicums, cabbage, asparagus and salad greens. Combining these with chicken, ham or fish makes it perfect for picnics and salads or for a light easy meal.

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.
