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.

  1. OVID 2017 PROPRIETARY WHITE "EXPERIMENT W4.7" CALIFORNIA 750mL

    Item #: i_248010
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Ovid Vineyards is one of the true new "cult kids on the street". Ovid's vineyards are located in the Vaca Mountains, on the eastern side of the Napa Valley. More specifically, the property is located in the area locals call "Pritchard Hill", which is were other notable producers reside, such as Chappellet, Continuum, David Arthur, Nine Suns, and Bryant Family The vineyards are meticulously maintained by David Abreu, and the wines are made by Austin Petersen.

    As Ovid has continued their exploration of the vast diversity that California has to offer, Ovid is increasingly drawn to the cooler climates. These wines offer vibrancy, freshness and clean delineation that engage both curiosity and palate. In this pursuit, Ovid has ventured to the far northern tip of Mendocino County — a wild and ruggedly beautiful place. It is from this verdant region that they found the newest contributors to the blend: Marsanne and Picpoul Blanc, varieties that bring sonorous white floral aromatics, lemon zest and vivacity.

    A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Brenache Blanc, Albarino, Roussanne, Picpoul Blanc, Viognier, Vermentino, and Marsanne, these new elements add lift to the chorus of guava, cassis bud, pear, white peach, rosemary and brioche. Rich and lively on the palate, this wine is a graceful expression of imagination set free.

  3. PETER MICHAEL 2018 SAUVIGNON BLANC "L'APRES-MIDI" KNIGHTS VALLEY 750mL

    Item #: i_242440
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Grown along side of Peter Michael's Les Pavots Bordeaux red varietals, the Sauvignon Blanc for L'Apres-Midi has taken to the cool slopes of Mount St. Helena. The grapes were picked and sorted by hand, whole cluster pressed and then naturally fermented in barrel. No malolactic fermentation was conducted in order to preserve the fruity and zesty character of the Sauvignon Blanc. All lots were aged separately on their lees for 8 months with gentle bâtonnage, then judiciously blended to compose the cuvee.

    Intense and multi-layered, the bouquet is dominated by mineral, vine blossom, yellow nettle blossom, honeysuckle, white vine rose, hawthorn, lemon, lime, white peach, completed by acacia honey and candied anise. Rich, balanced, and elegant, the zesty flavors are reminiscent of the aromas with additional guava, Williams pear, Mirabelle plum and fresh almond notes. The strong mineral background, a stamp from the terroir, balances the overall richness and gives superb refinement. The finish is layered, extremely long and elegant.

    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."

    After more than a decade of "visits" to the wine country to purchase hand crafted boutique wines, and to enjoy the spectacular scenery, Steve Nordhoff, and a group of close friends decided to start the journey of creating a wine project that reflects their passion, past experiences, and love for Napa and Sonoma.

The beauty is there aromatically, with an initial impression of lime zest, lemon pith, and citrus blossom.

  20. 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).
