Bonterra Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc Muscat Blanc North Coast 2009
Wine Tasting Notes Intense aromas of grapefruit, kiwi and freshly cut grass mix with concentrated tropical aromas and a bright minerality. A blend of fruit raised in the prime growing regions of Mendocino and Lake counties, this wine is the product of local organic viticulture in full flower.
We've been farming organically since 1987. Because it's our belief that organic grapes make better wine.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Direct, well-ripened peach-like fruit sits beneath a top note of dusty rose perfume in the distinctive aromas of this bottling, and, if each trait is echoed in the flavors that follow, the wine is a bit less convincing in fruit and a streak of unwelcome heat pushes past its scant sweetness. We suspect that a brief rest in the cellar might help round off its edges, but beauty is not guaranteed here.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
Lemon-lime flavors are ripe and tasty, showing good intensity and focus, with herb, melon and spice highlights. There's a refreshing acidity running through this. Drink now.
Good price for a dry, crisp wine of this quality. Shows zesty gooseberry, citrus, green apple and honeysuckle flavors and a brisk, clean mouthfeel.
Ultraclean and bright, as Bonterra's wines nearly always are, this Riesling shows good varietal flavors of citrus fruits, peaches, wildflowers and minerals. It's bone dry, and the acidity is wonderfully mouth-cleansing. Try as an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
A sweet riesling with simple gum drop flavors and clean acidity in the finish, this is balanced for sipping on its own.
There's no oak in this dry, crisp, clean white wine. It shows the tangy citrus, green grass, vanilla and spice flavors you want in a nice Sauvignon Blanc, with just a touch of gooseberry. Good cocktail wine at a fair price, and easy to find, with 51,500 cases produced.
