Anderson Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Anderson Valley Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: Rated 91 points by Wine & Spirits Magazine! The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel to retain its natural, bright acidity and tropical fruit notes - after all, these unique flavors are the reason we love the grape in the first place. In the summer we like to conduct our family business meetings sitting outside with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, watching the vineyard after a day of work. I highly recommend it.

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.
