Grgich Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2009

External Review by The Wine Buyer:

Complex and rich, this wine is packed with layers of tropical aromas including white peaches, grapefruit and lemon oil. With its crisp, refreshing texture, hint of mineral and long finish, this versatile, flavorful white wine is a great companion to many light dishes or on its own.

The wine has crisp, elegant flavors of passion fruit, lemon grass and a hint of mineral at the end of the long finish are perfect with a green salad topped by Chevre cheese, grilled seafood or sauteed chicken breast.

Winemaker Notes - Relying on naturally-occurring yeasts, we fermented 80% of the grapes in 900-gallon French oak casks, called foudres, with the remainder in previously-used small French oak barrels. We then aged the wine six months on its lees (the spent yeast) in neutral barrels. These techniques add body while showcasing the wonderful fruit, not masking it behind new oak. The wine's crisp, elegant flavors of passion fruit, lemon grass and a hint of mineral at the end of the long finish are perfect with a green salad topped by Chèvre cheese, grilled seafood or sautéed chicken breast.
