Pale straw in color, the exotic nose of this wine offers passion fruit, gooseberry, ginger, citrus, and pear notes. Flavors are pure and vibrant, with appropriate acidity and minerality adding an edginess and structure to the mouth.

Sauvignon Blanc can be very stylish and often evoke a love/hate reaction. Peter Franus' Sauvignon Blanc is a "friendlier" version. The tropical and mineral elements keep the herbal notes in check, and the mouth offers appropriate richness to support the lively acidity always present in cool-climate grapes. Growers Jim Fore and Doug Hill planted the distinctive Musque clone on their Stewart Ranch for Peter Franus, and since 1999 have provided him with those grapes. The end result is a wine with mineral, citrus, and melon notes most reminiscent of wines from France's Loire Valley. This 2011 Sauvignon Blanc is delightfully refreshing and perhaps the most Loire-like of the last few vintages.
