Refreshing tropical fruit with a light hint of oak

The Season
The 2010 growing season was even longer than most in Monterey. Above average rainfall in the spring combined with cool summer temperatures to delay the vines by about two weeks. Warm weather in late September ripened the fruit for a harvest that lasted through early November. The grapes achieved full phenolic ripeness due to the lighter, concentrated crop.

The Process
The Sauvignon Blanc is a proprietary blending of the Sauvignon Musqué and classic Sauvignon Blanc clones. Sauvignon Musqué is a cultivar that we prize for its aromatic intensity and citrus, tropical fruit flavors.

The Experience
The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc features aromas of kiwi, apricot, green apple and lilac. Flavors of plum, mango and pear are lively and refreshing. Oak aging lightly accents the bright acidity and adds an elegant texture. Try with shellfish, seafood, and Asian- Fusion cuisine with a touch of spicy heat.
