Mauritson Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek California Wine 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 Mauritson Sauvignon Blanc The bright pink grapefruit aromas in the nose are accentuated by dried apricot and fresh cut hay. The round texture in the mouth conjures flavors of honeydew melon and peach orchard. The lush yet vibrant mouth feel gives way to clean balanced acidity in the back of the palate where the wine finishes clean with a hint of mineral. Truly a wine with a sense of place!

With over 270 acres of estate vineyards and close relationships with longtime growers throughout Sonoma County, we are able to source and manage our favorite blocks from each vineyard throughout the growing season and select the most premium fruit during harvest.Each vineyard and appellation we source from carry particular qualities in either the terroir or the farming style that we look for when considering a Mauritson wine release. Six generations of farming has taught us a few things about choosing premium fruit! Each harvest, the best from our 230 acres throughout the Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys is reserved for our Estate Wines. These wines, which include our signature Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, showcase the fruit-forward, floral and spice-driven characteristics attributed to these appellations. Winemaking may have been the logical evolution in our family’s long history of farming in the Dry Creek Valley, however, it took an absence from the valley and attention to those inner voices that led Clay Mauritson back to these same vineyards that he spent planting, tending and picking as a teen. What he came to realize was that he already had a lifetime of understanding about the subtleties and strengths of each micro-climate within the Dry Creek, Rockpile and Alexander Valleys. The only thing left was to DREAM BIG! Tasting Room We are open daily from 10-5. Group Tasting by Appointment, Handicap Accessible, Picnic Facilities, Wine Tasting, Wine Tours by Appointment.

One of the best domestic sauvignon blancs I've had in a long time. Blessed be, no oak. Fresh and grassy, but not assertive in the way of a NZ SB. Instead, warmer melon, meyer lemon, and clementine flavors accompany the grassy notes. Very nice. Would definitely buy again. Thanksgiving pick.

Dry, refreshing, and great with desserts. In my opinion, it's better than the New Zealand versions out there.



Tasting Notes:

The bright grapefruit up front is framed beautifully by hints of dried peach and fresh cut hay. The surprisingly round mouth feel gives way to wonderfully balanced acidity in the back of the palate.
