SAUVIGNON BLANC

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. Sauvignon Blanc is planted in many of the world's wine regions, producing a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine. The grape is also a component of the famous dessert wines from Sauternes and Barsac. Sauvignon Blanc is widely cultivated in France, Chile, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Washington and California. Some New World Sauvignon blancs, particularly from California, may also be called "Fume Blanc". Depending on the climate, the flavor can range from aggressively grassy to sweetly tropical. In cooler climates, the grape has a tendency to produce wines with noticeable acidity and "green flavors" of grass, green bell peppers and nettles with some tropical fruit (such as passion fruit) and floral (such as elderflower) notes. 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 (such as peach) notes.

  3. QUIVIRA 2017 SAUVIGNON BLANC "ALDER GROVE" DRY CREEK VALLEY 750mL

    Item #: i_252320
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Spectator: 93
    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."

    Item #: i_262635
    Bottle Size: 375ml
    **Please note, this is a half sized bottle
    In addition to their Estate grown Cabernet Sauvignons that have garnered 100-point scores, Spottswoode always produces one of our favorite Sauvignon Blancs out of California! In addition to their own estate Sauvignon Blanc, Spottswoode gets grapes from other noteworthy vineyards, such as Hyde and Stagecoach, and a handful of others, and also utilizes the Musque clone of Sauvignon Blanc. Spottswoode's method of fermentation (using a combination of small stainless barrels, French oak and concrete eggs) means that they manage up to 200 individual fermentations each year. This technique results in a complex, rich, and vibrant wine that stands well on its own, pairs beautifully with food, and is further enhanced with a bit of cellaring.

    Winemaker's Notes: "In a vintage of such extreme heat, we were able to craft a wine that is ripe and textured, yet still retains its freshness—a notable achievement! The wine is mouthcoating and viscous, with a balancing acid tension and great mouth-watering juiciness. The beauty is there aromatically, with an initial impression of lime zest, lemon pith, and citrus blossom. It then opens to white peach, nectarine, mandarin, cream, with hints of vanilla and lime curd, both on the nose and on the palate. Rich and texturally enticing, with great balance and length."

  15. UPPERCUT 16 SB NORTH COAST NORTH COAST 750mL

    Item #: i_270550
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Sourced from select vineyards in Mendocino and Lake Counties, the grapes for this bottling definitely benefited from the large diurnal temperature swings both areas are known for. This allowed for slow maturation of the fruit, leading to more complexity of flavor in the finished juice. Refined and classy, the nose leads with beautiful notions of stone fruits, lemon grass, honeydew melon and a light river water mineral touch; a very rich, rounded nose. The palate combines beautiful viscosity and lushness with good background acidity and flavors of key lime, nectarine and a touch of carambola (star fruit), all lightly rinsed in more river water (minerality). This is an ideal food companion (oysters on the half shell, white fish, white-sauce pastas, cheeses) but will also do incredibly well solo (think friends, patios, sunsets, that kind of thing).

  16. WALTER SCHUG 2017 SAUVIGNON BLANC SONOMA COAST 750mL

    Item #: i_258440
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from cooler vineyards in the southern end of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The Hi-Vista vineyard in western Carneros and the Grossi vineyard north of Petaluma contribute spice and bright tangy acidity. The Leveroni vineyard south of Sonoma contributes the unique floral character of the Sauvignon "musque" clone, with lush fruit flavors reminiscent of melon, honeysuckle and grapefruit. These flavors are enhanced by the creamy richness of fermentation and aging on the yeast in older (neutral) casks. It finishes with a lively acidity that makes it an ideal accompaniment to a wide range of soups, salads and shellfish dishes
