Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
With a classic nose of bright citrus, tropical fruits, and grassy notes, this Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing. The palate offers up lightly honeyed lemon and grapefruit flavors, complemented by a streak of spicy lemongrass.
Vineyard Notes
With its wide diurnal shift and ample sunshine, Chalk Hill is a great AVA for growing Sauvignon Blanc. With the block’s southwesterly exposure, fully ripe fruit character is achieved while cooler nightly temperatures aid in preserving the acidity of the grapes.
Winemaker Notes
Hand-picked in the cool of the night, into half-ton bins with immediate delivery to the winery. The grapes were destemmed and sent to the press as whole berries. Cold juice from the press pan was immediately pumped to tanks where it was chilled and settled for several days. At that point the clear juice was racked off the solids and fermented for 3 weeks at 55 degrees.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this wine with salads, seafood dishes, and spicy ethnic cuisines.

This quite reminds me of some of the New Zealand SB's I had while travelling there. Lot's of fruit with a strong varietal character . Tasty stuff.
