Breathe in the fascinating scent of passion fruit and sweet tropical citrus fruits. Whether dreaming of being in a gorgeous locale, or sharing a glass of our 2008 Russian River Sauvignon Blanc in your own yard, taste the lingering flavors of lemon, pineapple, and apricots. Finish as the sun sets and enjoy the leftover essence of honey-glazed cantaloupe and lemon drops long after the wine is gone. The crisp, citrusy tang of Sauvignon Blanc makes it an ideal summer sipper – refreshing, cooling, and food-friendly with the season’s lighter fare. This is also a great appetizer wine that goes well with Goat Cheese Crostini or grilled summer asparagus with parmesan cheese.
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.
