Kenwood Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma County 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Sauvignon Blanc has been our most popular wine for more than twenty-five years and we have long been recognized as one of California’s top Sauvignon Blanc producers. The fruit sourced for this wine comes from vineyards located in five different appellations in Sonoma County. The cooler regions of Carneros and the Russian River Valley bring grassy characteristics to the wine, while grapes from the warmer Dry Creek, Sonoma Valley and Alexander Valley regions create melony, fruity flavors. The result can be found in this well-balanced, award-winning wine. Food Pairing Best served chilled, this Sauvignon Blanc makes an excellent aperitif and complements a number of dishes. Excellent with light-sauced poultry, shellfish and seafood dishes, as well as spicy Asian cuisine. Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc Appellation: Sonoma County Aging: 100% Stainless Steel Alcohol: 13.5%

Located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley, Kenwood Vineyards is dedicated to producing premium wines truly representative of Sonoma County’s world-class vineyards. Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Thoroughly refurbished and modernized, the facility now boasts more than 125 stainless steel fermenting tanks and large oak uprights, and 20,000 small French and American oak barrels, all devoted to Kenwood Vineyards’ “small lot” style of winemaking. In addition to the 22-acre vineyard surrounding the winery, Kenwood Vineyards sources grapes from dozens of vineyards – many farmed sustainably, using natural soil amendments and pest controls whenever possible rather than chemicals - in Sonoma County’s best appellations, including Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley and Sonoma Mountain. Each lot from each vineyard is kept separate throughout the winemaking process, enabling the winemaker to bring it to its fullest potential. This “small lot” or “cuvee” style of winemaking also enables the winemaker to draw on an exceptionally broad “palette” to assemble wines that showcase classic character, subtle complexity and superb balance. As a result, every Kenwood Vineyards wine – whether Table Wine Series, Sonoma Series, Reserve, Jack London Vineyard or Artist Series – is consistent in quality and consistently delicious. Read less

Creamy, citrus with a decent level of acidity. Very light and enjoyable.

    Winemaker's notes: Intense varietal character with aromas of lemongrass guava and boxwood. Fresh and crisp with lively body and a lingering finish. Best served chilled this Sauvignon Blanc makes an excellent aperitif and complements a number of dishes. Excellent with light-sauced poultry shellfish and seafood dishes as well as spicy Asian cuisine.
