Avalon Winery California Sauvignon Blanc 2010
Sauvignon Blanc vineyards from the Central Coast primarily in the San Lucas area of Monterey and Santa Barbara County makes up 85 percent of this wine. These areas typically provide grapes with good acidity, fresh fruit flavors and aromas. The remaining 15 percent was from Lake County noted for its consistency of style and citrus fruit flavors entwined with distinct mineral notes.
On the nose the wine shows aromatics of a slightly grassy note with plenty of citrus and tropical notes and a hint of minerality. The wine shows bright, pure flavors and good balance. The wine tastes of fresh pineapple and crisp grapefruit with a clean, crisp finish. The addition of the Gewuerztraminer contributes a subtle orange note to the wine on the back of the palate. A clean wine perfect for pairing with seafood dishes, grilled chicken or oysters.
