For such a "clean" smooth wine, packs a whole lot of flavor -- and I am not traditionally a big fan of Sauvignon Blanc. Long but pleasant finish. Excellent acid balance.

Brilliant acidity gives this wine a clean raciness that so many Sauvignon Blancs lack. It has ripe, forward flavors of lemons, limes, apricots, peaches and honey, but despite the richness is dry and minerally

Winemakers' Notes: "2009 was notable for the tempering fog influence within the valley creating a perfect growing season for Sauvignon Blanc. The growing season started out cool and dry, carrying over the drought effects from 2008. The predominantly dry weather continued into spring, where there was a warm, near-perfect bloom period. The dry spell was broken by substantial rains in May which replenished the soil moisture and allowed for strong growth. Summer weather was mild, with temperatures rarely exceeding 90F. The warm days and cold nights allowed for gentle ripening. The milder temperatures towards the end of summer allowed us to harvest during the final week of August."

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Twomey Cellars Sauvignon Blanc is a wine that deftly balances the varied expressions of this classic variety. It has a light-straw color with green tinges and aromas of fresh pear, crisp green apple, lime and grapefruit zest enriched by hints of honeydew. The freshness is accentuated by wet stone minerality and lifted white citrus blossoms, nuanced by fresh cream and lemongrass tones. On the palate, the fine lime citrus acidity is fleshed out with a well balanced mid-palate giving a creamy, yet fresh feeling. The wet limestone minerality balances the sweet green apple notes and the honeysuckle richness extends into incredible length. This perfectly balanced wine delivers generous flesh upon a frame of lacy minerality. A complex fresh and rich wine to pair wonderfully with food or to be relished on its own.
