This crisp Sauvignon Blanc is a delightful summer treat. Made in the Fume Blanc style, crisp aromas of grapefruit and ripe tropical pineapple prepare your palate of rich Asian pear, zesty pineapple & sungold tomatoes. The smooth finish features flavors of angelcot and a lingering sweet citrus. I love this Sauvignon Blanc poolside on a hot summer day. This pairs well with a romantic picnic for two overlooking the beautiful Anderson Valley or the California Coast. This is also a great appetizer wine that goes best with a seared Ahi tuna with a nectarine salsa.
Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California -- at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety -- and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’. When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the wine world’s darlings. Steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character characterize dry wines made from this grape.
