Decoy Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc since 1982. Expanding on this winemaking tradition, Decoy Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc allows our winemaking team the opportunity to explore a different expression of this great grape from another recognized California appellation. The 2013 growing season delivered a vibrant and aromatic expression of Sauvignon Blanc with lovely layers of mango and papaya, balanced by notes of citrus zest and orange blossom. On the palate, this wine is soft and velvety with flavors of white peach, grapefruit and melon leading to a long, crisp finish. Eight vineyards harvested. 100% stainless steel fermentation.

Light intensity aromas of quince and gooseberry. Flavors are full with medium plus intensity, lemon lime and tart acidity. Crisp and fresh wine, perfect for sipping.
