Sauvignon Blanc, Monterey

Reserve Sauvignon Blanc, Monterey Wine Details
Price: $17.95 per bottle

Description: Our Reserve Sauvignon Blanc hails from cool Monterey. A crisp bouquet reveals grapefruit, and lemongrass. The color and taste of pure sunshine, this Sauvignon Blanc is Wildly refreshing with notes of gooseberry and grapefruit, coupled with creamy lemon custard on the palate. Barrel fermentation and oak aging have intensified the fruit flavors while adding spicy notes. This is a summer patio sipper. Enjoy this Limited Release Sauvignon Blanc at your next brunch with Eggs Benedict or hollandaise-smothered filet of sole.

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.
