D’Anbino Sauvignon Blanc

D’Anbino Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Sauvignon Blanc, like Cabernet Sauvignon, is a grape variety hailing from the Bordeaux region of France. It needs heat during the day to fully ripen, and yet cool nights in order to retain a bright, nautral acidity. Viña Robles’ Jardine Vineyard provides such a place. The first vineyard planted in their portfolio, the Sauvignon Blancs from this vineyard display incredibly perfumed aromas and ripe, tropical flavors. Whole cluster pressing and stainless steel vinification ensured the true characteristics of the Sauvignon Blanc varietal and the vineyard shine through in every glass.

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.
