Fetzer California Sauvignon Blanc 2009
I’m a grape-friendly winemaker. Rather than push, I persuade. Our Sauvignon Blanc is a wine that calls for a soft hand to capture the crisp, clean flavors of lemon, green apple and mint making this a popular, food-friendly wine. With its balance of refreshing flavors and smooth taste, this is a great wine to start the end of your day.
Fetzer Vineyards was founded in 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County by Barney and Kathleen Fetzer. One of the first California wineries to branch out into serious Chardonnay production, Fetzer remains committed to sustainability and environmentally conscious wine production. Dennis Martin oversees all wine-making at Fetzer and is assisted by Charlie Gilmore and Michael Chupp, who are in charge of white wine making and red wine making respectively.
External Reviews for Fetzer California Sauvignon Blanc
Only a wise old company like Fetzer, with vast access to good vineyards and decades of winemaking experience, could produce such a nice Sauvignon Blanc in such huge quantities. The wine is dry and crisp, with rewarding flavors of green apples, pink grapefruits and figs. It taste smoky and full of vanilla, even though it has no oak.
Quite lemony at first, but finishes on a more herbal note, with hints of grapefruit as well; zingy and clean at the end.
Tart citrus, honey, apple and baked pear tones integrate nicely with toasty oak flavors in this yummy and budget-friendly Sauvignon. Drink now.
Bright and bracing, with lemon, earth and grass tones that will come alive with food. A very good white from a reliable producer. Drink now.
Fetzerrsquo;s done a nice job at making a dry, crisp Sauvignon Blanc thatrsquo;s easy to drink on itrsquo;s own, or to pair with a wide variety of food. The lemon and lime, grapefruit, fig, vanilla and pepper flavors are zesty and clean.
Intense and zingy, showing mouthwatering orange, lemon and green apple flavors, with notes of fresh-cut grass and lime zest on the finish. Drink now.
Juicy tangerine, grapefruit and grass notes have a slight pithy edge that gives this a refreshing bite. Drink now.
