Like the vineyards of Graves (the source of much-celebrated Bordeaux Blanc and the model for this wine), the vines are planted in gravely soil along the bank of Dry Creek. The Alder Grove provides shaded habitat for spawning fish, and the trees' roots nourish the soils in which the grapes for this wine are grown. Pictured on the label is an Alder catkin, the tree's flower that emerges just as Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon berries first form in Quivira's organically farmed estate vineyard.

WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "A complex note of dried honeysuckle and a whiff of smoke add intrigue and depth to the core of succulent peach, melon and mango flavors, set on a medium body, with a fresh frame. Shows wonderful purity of fruit and nuances that linger effortlessly. Drink now. 1,370 cases made."
