Smooth and fruity, with a nice core of grapefruit flavor, finishing spicy and round without losing its lively acidity. Read more

Bright and lemony. This one's got pucker-power, with grapefruit and herbs bringing up the rear. Drink now. Read more

Somewhat herbal up front, with a crisp follow-up redolent of grapefruit, lemon and lime. Refreshing and brisk, with a bright, sleek texture. Drink now.

Winery notes: To add richness and a hint of vanilla to our Classic Sauvignon Blanc we combine partial barrel fermentation with sur-lie aging in 60-gallon oak barrels. A portion of the wine is fermented in stainless steel to enhance fresh melon and crisp grapefruit flavors. The addition of Semillon further softens the wine's herbaceous character.

You'd never confuse this for anything else, with its green, grassy, lemony aromas and flavors and lively, tart astringency. Clean and simple, a picnic or cocktail wine at a fair price.

Classic, elegant, melon and grapefruit flavors combined with medium body and a wonderful, lively fresh melon finish. A must buy for anyone who enjoys fresh herbs with fish or lemon grass in any dish; the standard by which other Sauvignon Blancs are judged.

Winemaker's Notes:

Pretty, assertive aromas are a hallmark of Sauvignon Blanc, and this one has them in spades. Primary aromas of lime blossom, lemongrass, white grapefruti and oneysuckle are backed by charming nuances of white peach and minerals. Crisp, palate-cleansing acidity and juicy fruit flavors mark the palate, where flavors of citrus mingle with hints of tropical fruit before a clean, flinty finish.
