Clos Lachance Sauvignon Blanc Central Coast Estate 2005
Vineyard Notes: Fruit for the Estate Sauvignon Blanc is sourced 100% from the Clos LaChance Estate Vineyard in San Martin. The 150-acre Estate Vineyard was planted in 1999-2000. Nearly 20 varietals were planted, along with 60 separate clonesproviding Winemaker Stephen Tebb with a spice-rack of blending wines. Hot sunny days throughout the growing season, coupled with cool ocean breezes in the evenings, allow for increased grape hang-time, and the further development of flavors and complexities. Winemaker Tasting Notes: Strong aromas of lemon-zest and lime-aid are followed with notes of grapefruits and figs. I also get subtle notes of dry straw and grass. Flavors of ripe grapefruit, kiwi and Meyer lemon dominate the front of the palate. A crisp and zingy mid-palate finishes with hits of mineral and spice. Food Pairing: Linguine with Clams,Veal Piccata, Grilled Shrimp with Miso Sauce, Baked Fish with a Mustard Sauce, Gruyere or Sonoma Jack Cheese Technical Notes: Appellation: Central Coast Varietal: 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon Alcohol: 14% TA: 0.75g/100ml Production: 3914 Cases Bottled: January 27, 2006 Return to Clos LaChance Wine List
