Food Pairings for Maxwell Creek Sauvignon Blanc
After several dry seasons, January 2009 started in similar fashion. February brought some storms, but the remainder of the year was short on rain. This was good for vineyard flavors and also served to moderate the yields. All of this lead to wines with good structure and intensity. After nice spring conditions, June brought average temperatures, while July really turned up the heat for 2 weeks, which was followed by some hot days in August. This launched us into the harvest season for the Sauvignon Blanc, with juices in tank showing promise early on in the fermentation.
