The bright tropical fruit, lemon-lime and mineral expression in this Sauvignon Blanc comes from grapes grown on Provenance's Rutherford estate mixed with other outstanding neighborhood vineyards, It captures enticing flavors by whole-cluster pressing, followed by fermenting and aging sur lie. A splash of Semillon enhances its silky texture.
Good buy, a bit acidic at first
External Reviews for Provenance Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc
Offers vibrant lemon-lime, floral and papaya nectar aromas. Hints of lemongrass, gooseberry and minerals - the signature of this grape varietal - add complexity. The flavors echo the aromas, while picking up lychee, melon and ginger spice. Beautifully balanced, this wine combines bright acidity with a creamy texture. Lemon custard nuances mingle in the fruit-intense finish.
