Hanna Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2011 Sauvignon Blanc has vibrant straw coloring with a tinge of green. The aroma is of kaffir lime, orange blossom, kumquat with a touch of cool slate and vanilla bean. You will find flavors of mango, peach, and pomelo that lead the way with a zingy ripe nectarine mid-palate and an adroit, seamless finish. We grow and vinify our Sauvignon Blanc to be fresh, vibrant, and evocative of the grapes themselves. We have chosen a tin lined screwcap closure— unsurpassed in its ability to retain our wines exuberance. Please note that proper conservation requires cool, even temperatures and the absence of light.

Hanna has evolved from a winery dependent primarily on outside growers, to a 100% estate winery, with 252 acres of planted vineyards in three of Sonoma County's finest appellations. Our own vineyards allow us to control every aspect of grape growing, and we feel our wine quality has improved immeasurably. Alexander Valley Red Ranch We affectionately call this our "Red Ranch" as it is currently planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. When we first bought the ranch in 1985, it was planted in large part to Chardonnay and French Colombard. We find the red loam soils and warm climate to be ideal for the red Bordeaux varieties. With gently sloping blocks and terraced hillsides, this 100 acre ranch is also home to a tasting room with panoramic views. The Mediterranean style tasting room sits atop a knoll overlooking our "Red Ranch" vineyard and Alexander Valley. A stunning wrap-around veranda is the perfect place to enjoy the view while sipping our award winning wines. The vineyard is home to our flagship Cabernet and Merlot. Open Daily 10-4 Read less

Sauvignon Blanc has been a consistent performer for Hanna, usually yielding a rich, ripe wine with brisk acidity. The '11 is one of their best efforts. It's tart, clean and savory, with the pineapple, tangerine and Meyer lemon flavors touched with a slight sweetness. - S.H. Our 2011 SB has vibrant straw coloring with a tinge of green.

HANNA Winery has its roots on a farm in Syria where Dr. Elias S. Hanna, a world-renowned cardiac surgeon now based in San Francisco, was born and raised. Today, the Hanna family owns 600 acres, 250 of which are planted, split between four different vineyards.

The wine emphasizes fruit in the aromas and mid palate with a finish broadened by malolactic fermentation. It's fresh and quaffable with distinctive lime, grass and a murmur of basil.-From the Winery
