Teira Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley Woods Vineyard 2011
Daughters Thea and Keira inspired the name of this winery founded in 2002 by Daniel Donahoe and Alexis Woods, both of whom grew up around food and wine. The Woods family has grown Dry Creek Valley fruit for 35 years. Lemony citrus, slight green herb and hint of mineral; very tart acidity. Dry Creek Vineyards winemaker Bill Knuttel ferments it all in stainless steel.
