Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: Fresh, fresh and refresh are the words that characterize our Sauvignon Blanc. Crystal clear and as pale as the yellow winter sunlight; you can actually breathe in the heady aromas of lime blossom, fennel, citrus white peaches, pears and fresh mown grass. Natural zingy freshness accentuates the fruity boquet with watering flavors of citrus, apples, pears and apricot. Perfect to wash down all manner of seafood; oysters would plead for this wine--then anything from crabs to clams. The sooner you drink it, the better it is, echoing laughter, fun and the joy of youth

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.
Fermented beverage made with honey, water and yeast optionally with flavoring ingredients.
