2021 Balverne Sauvignon Blanc

2021 Balverne Sauvignon Blanc
Chalk Hill

Step into springtime with this crisp and playful Sauvignon Blanc from Chalk Hill. The perfect white wine to compliment a picnic in scenic surroundings with light fair. This light-bodied wine showcases perfumes of pink grapefruit, honeydew sorbet, and white florals crushed into white chalk. The palate is just as flirty, with hints of guava, citrus pulp, jasmine, and lemon grass lingering on the tongue.

Food Pairing Suggestion: White fish crudo with avocado, micro greens, & citrus cucumber dressing

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.

Delicious and springy. With an enjoyable tropical fruit nose, and refreshingly vibrant in taste, this wine is reminiscent of a quality New Zealand sauvignon blanc. Delightful!
