Food Pairings for Montevina California Sauvignon Blanc
The philosophy behind Montevina 2008 Sauvignon Blanc is minimalism. Half of the grapes crushed are sent immediately to press and half are left overnight in fermentors before being pressed. This added skin contact allows for more extraction, and keeping the fermentation at 55 degrees helps retain tropical fermentation aromas. The Montevina 2008 Sauvignon Blanc has seen no oak. Barrel fermenting or oak aging would smother the freshness we wish to showcase. The lees are not stirred and the wine is not put through malolactic fermentation. Minimal handling ensures a fresh, clean canvas to showcase bright flavors and aromas.
The soft lemon color of the 2008 Montevina Sauvignon Blanc suggests the brightness and freshness of the fruit as well as a racy acidity. Aromas of fresh-cut grass and citrus zest invite further exploration. Clean and bright, the flavors of ripe fig and melon cool the tongue. Pair Montevina Sauvignon Blanc with buttery foods, as the acidity cuts nicely through the richness. The clean crisp brightness of the wine also makes a nice accompaniment to spicy cuisine.
