2016 Sauvignon Blanc

Sold Out


We’ve been making Sauvignon Blanc from Jon Peterson’s vineyard in Kenwood since 1984. The vineyard sits in a low cool spot in the valley, perfect for SB. Sauvignon Blanc grapes are some of the tastiest of all wine grapes. They possess so much flavor and nuance that we just have to ferment it cleanly to get this spectacular wine, which is bright yet rich in flavors of tropical fruit, grapefruit and citrus. The nose is true and fresh with no hint of green grass or cat pee, which we consider defects in so many Sauvignon Blancs, caused by stressed yeast and and poor techniques.  There is no better SB on the planet. It is our favorite choice before the meal or chatting with friends on the veranda. Our favorite pairing is Sole with bur blanc sauce. It will also pair nicely with a lemon juice dressing salad and will even compliment Asparagus.
