LangeTwins Sauvignon Blanc

LangeTwins Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Our Sauvignon Blanc is grown just walking distance from the winery on the edge of Jahant Creek. It opens with a mellow citrus aroma and a well balanced creamy texture pleases the palate. A crisp Meyer lemon note blended with honeydew melon gives the Sauvignon Blanc a refreshing fruit flavor, and sur-lie aging brings forth a creamy textured palate for a long finish.

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.
