Honig Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

A bright, fruit forward Sauvignon Blanc, with citrus aromas of grapefruit, lemongrass, and lime, overlaying passion fruit and mango characters. The vibrant tropical flavors linger, while the finish is crisp and refreshing.

In 1964, Louis Honig purchased a 68-acre ranch in the heart of the Napa Valley and planted it with Sauvignon blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. For the next few years, Louis sold the grapes to neighboring wineries with the dream of retiring one day from his San Francisco advertising business and making wine from his vineyard in Rutherford. Before he could realize his dream, Louis passed away, leaving the estate to his children and grandchildren. In 1981, as a tribute to his legacy, the family rallied together to produce several hundred cases of Louis Honig Sauvignon Blanc in the vineyard's old tractor barn. The wine won a Gold Medal at the Orange County Fair, and thus, the winery was born. In 1984, at the age of 22, Louis' grandson, Michael Honig, took over management of the vineyard and winery. With a lot of hard work and a beat up pickup truck, Honig managed to get their Sauvignon Blanc into most fine restaurants in California. From there, production and distribution grew. In 1987, in addition to the Sauvignon Blanc for which they were already known, they began producing small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon. Family members Regina Weinstein joined them in 1997 and Steven Honig in 2000. Read less

The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc offers plenty of fig, melon and caramelized grapefruit characteristics in its fresh, crisp personality. With excellent texture and medium body, this delicious, dry, complex, satisfying Sauvignon should provide plenty of enjoyment over the next year. The good news is there are 50,000 cases.

Bright and lemony, with a refreshing zip of acidity weaving in and out of the citrus zest, peach and apple flavors. Drink now.

Zippy acidity lends crisp freshness to the lemongrass and freshly squeezed lime flavors. With a honey-sweet midpalate, it's a lovely wine to drink now with Vietnamese, Ethiopian or Mexican fare. - S.H. Wine Enthusiast. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from California in USA. 2011 Honig Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
