Beckmen Vineyards Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2011
100% Sauvignon Blanc. Intensely aromatic, it displays concentrated flavors of citrus and tropical fruits, with a lush texture and a bright, juicy finish.
Founded in 1994 by Tom and Steve Beckmen, Beckmen Vineyards is a family-run, estate winery located in Santa Barbara County's Santa Ynez Valley. The Beckmens also purchased a spectacular, unplanted 365-acre Santa Ynez Valley ranch in 1996. Naming it Purisima Mountain Vineyard, Tom and Steve began a meticulous planting process designed to maintain the natural diversity of the site. Since its founding, Beckmen Vineyards has emerged as one of North America's premier producers of Rhone varietal wines, while also helping to establish Santa Barbara County as one of California's most highly regarded winegrowing regions. All of Beckmen's wines are 100% estate grown, produced, and bottled. As part of their Estate series, this fruit-driven wine is crafted to fully express the terroir of their vineyards and the character of its varietal. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, this wine was fermented exclusively in stainless steel tanks, creating a fresh and vibrant expression of the grape.
