North Coast Sauvignon Blanc

North Coast Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $19.00 per bottle

Description: A great holiday wine. Bravante Vineyards' Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Suisun Valley and is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Musque. This wine was partially fermented in neutral barrels, which gives us a luscious, full texture in the mid-palate, while the stainless steel tank fermentation preserves the bright acidity and great lemon and white peach flavors. Serve this wine with tarragon chicken or crab cakes for a perfect food / wine pairing.

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.
