Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc

Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details

Description: Generous aromas and layers of tropical fruit, honeydew melon and tangy citrus lead to a crisp, juicy finish. It’s clean, fresh and ready to drink. Low yielding vines resulted in a uniform crop of vibrant fruit. Our winemaker, Charlie Wagner, has highlighted these true varietal characteristics in the 2003 vintage.

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.
