Flying Cloud Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Light on its feet, the wine has a delicate, but well put together framework. It is very pale yellow in color and has delicate aromatics of watermelon rind, lime zest and white peach. The mouth is impeccably balanced, with a light body and moderate alcohol, clean and crisp acidity, and lingering passion fruit and guava flavors.
This is the winery's inaugural release of Flying Cloud Sauvignon Blanc and we couldn’t be more proud. In fact the entire line of Flying Cloud wines underwent a package change in 2015 with a new label for each variety. This is our white Flying Cloud wine and it stands beside the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Aviator. The 2015 growing season was defined by the continuation of a four year drought, moderate temperatures (74 degrees F) during the Spring and Summer, a bizarre rainstorm in July dropping 2 inches of rain, and relentless waves of warm weather (90 degrees F) during harvest in late August and September.
