Crisp flavors of grapefruit and green apple with notes of ripe fig are the most distinguishing charatceristics this fruit-forward, award-winning selection. Produced from a vineyard established more than 100 years ago by descendants of European winemakers, its grapes provide a marvelous complexity and balance. The winemaker recommends serving this delicate treat with grilled or sautéed seafood in a butter or cream sauce. And, it brings out the best in veggie dishes like spinach and cheese-stuffed pasta shells.
Grown in a sunny, protected valley in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this treat showcases the flavors of a cooler weather Sauvignon Blanc, with a touch of Semillon for depth. Fresh and zesty with aromas of melon, freshly cut grass, green apple, sweet citrus zest and fig, this wine has a brisk acidity that carries its fruit and herbal flavors through a refreshing finish. Serve with fresh goat cheese, seafood or vegetarian dishes.
This 2011 Sauvignon Blanc was crafted from select parcels of fruit from vineyards across South Eastern Australia. The wine colour is very pale straw with bright green hints. On the nose it shows strong aromas of fresh tropical fruits.
