District 7 Sauvignon Blanc 2014
A lively array of melon, passion fruit and citrus flavors glide across the palate. This is a vibrant wine that finishes with a refreshing, crisp acidity. Our District 7 Sauvignon Blanc makes a lovely apéritif or as an accompaniment with simple seafood, herbal- prepared white meat dishes, and spicy, ethnic cuisines.
Sauvignon Blanc is ultra-sensitive to climate and grapes from vineyards that are just a few miles apart can impart very different taste characteristics. For our District 7 Sauvignon Blanc, we chose the fruit from two of our estate vineyards. The brisk and windy conditions in the northern estate vineyard bring out the grassy and herbal traits of this varietal, while the estate vineyard located about 20 miles south, which has a little more sunshine and warmth, brings out the fruity melon flavors.
