Proprietors' Sauvignon Blanc

Proprietors' Reserve Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details

Description: Brilliantly aromatic, the bold citrus driven bouquet exhibits ripe grapefruit notes accentuated by distinctive grassy aromas. A profusion of fresh honeydew melon, mango and ripe citrus flavours with hints of fig linger on the crisp, richly textured finish.

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.
