Georis Sauvignon Blanc

Georis Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $23.00 per bottle

Description: This is our 6th vintage of Sauvignon Blanc. We feel that the 2004 is our best to date. This wine has all of the finesse and complexities that Sauvignon Blanc can offer. This wine is elegant and crisp, with a light tropical fruit in the finish. It is barrel fermented in French chateau barrels.

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.
