Girard Winery Sauvignon Blanc St. Helena 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A very clean, fresh and crisp Sauvignon Blanc; Lush aromas of citrus zest, pineapple and guava on the nose, while the palate exhibits fresh-cut grapefruit and Meyer lemon. A wonderful apéritif wine that pairs well with lighter white fish, green salads and goat cheese....Winemakers Notes

The narrow, winding road up Sage Canyon leads a traveler to one of Napa Valley's best kept secrets: Pritchard Hill, where mountain wineries such as Bryant Family, Colgin and Chappellet have carved a niche into the steep slopes. It's here that you will find the vineyards from which Girard's 93-point Cabernet was born. Girard was founded 35 years ago at the dawn of New Age winemaking in California. Since its inception, Girard Winery's quest has remained unchanged: to seek out world-class vineyards and produce from them, wines that in every way possible, reflect the breathtakingly rare terroir in which the grapes were grown. On hillsides high above Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon is king. And Girard winemaker Marco DiGiulio lets terroir - or the vineyard - determine his choice of varietals. It's no wonder Girard's Cabernet ripens well on the rugged terrain of Napa's mountain appellations, with views that stretch clear across the valley. At lower altitudes, richer soils are more suitable to growing white grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc and red grapes like Merlot. As a result, Girard has dedicated much of its valley floor acreage to these varietals. Additionally, the winery sources a small amount of Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah from individual growers in other parts of the valley. The Chardonnay in the winery's portfolio also comes from grapes grown in Sonoma's upscale Russian River Valley. For more than three decades, Girard has celebrated its sense of place in the California wine country. With the right grapes from the right locations, this Napa Valley winery offers a line-up that features both power and finesse - the hallmark of great California wine.

Citrus and melon aromas and flavors. Light and refreshing, fleshy on the finish.

Pear taste with less acidity than most sauvignons; neutral feeling about it overall

I really like the 2009 Girard Sauv Blanc. It is not my fave sauv blanc, but an excellent drinker, and will pair with a wide variety of foods. The expected grapefruit is there, but subdued. Subdued is how I would call this SB. There is a hint of pear, and some mineral. It is not your typical grapefruit/over the top SB. But there is a complexity here, that develops in layers as you taste. A bit lighter than other sauv blancs. recommend.. good food pairing.
