Jonata la Flor Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"One brilliant exception is Jonata’s 2008 La Flor de Jonata, one of the finest dry white wines made in Central Coast. A blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 23% Viognier, and 17% Semillon, it is aged two-thirds in new and neutral French oak and the rest in stainless steel, and goes through partial malolactic. A rich, medium to full-bodied, dry white with tropical fruit, honeyed citrus, wax, nectarine, and marmalade notes, it is incredibly complex, fresh, pure, and lively, but no wimpy wine at nearly 15% alcohol. This is serious stuff to drink over the next few years...94" WA 08/10

Jonata:
JONATA is 600 acres of gorgeous, golden mills; eighty of which were meticulously selected based on their unique microclimates and soil profiles, then divided into more than fifty blocks and sub-blocks - each matched with different rootstock. Clones and planting densities - to provide winemaker Matt Dees with the broadest palette from which to blend the distinctive wines of JONATA.
