The Sauvignon Musque clone lends gorgeous aromatics to our Sauvignon Blanc. The Yount Ridge Vineyard is high in natural acidity resulting in a fresh and vibrant wine with impactful aromas and flavors of citrus, peach, mango and jasmine flower all nicely layered with a touch of crisp acidity.
The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc offers lovely depth and texture, much of it coming from aging on the lees and a partial fermentation in barrel. Lemon confit, white flower and chamomile add nuance, but it is the wine's texture and slight element of oiliness that stands out. This is very nicely done.
Sauvignon Blanc is a green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France. The grape most likely gets its name from the French words sauvage ("wild") and blanc ("white”) due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France. It is possibly a descendant of Savagnin. Sauvignon blanc is planted in many of the world's wine regions, producing a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine. Depending on the climate, the flavor can range from aggressively grassy to sweetly tropical. In cooler climates, the grape tends to produce wines with noticeable acidity and "green flavors" of grass, green bell peppers and nettles with some tropical fruit and floral. In warmer climates, it can develop more tropical fruit notes but risk losing a lot of aromatics from over-ripeness, leaving only slight grapefruit and tree fruit notes.
Pair sauvignon blanc with:
- Green vegetables
- Whole fish roasted with potatoes and thyme
- Mild vinaigrettes
- Spring panzanelle with asparagus
