Refreshing and light with a distinct grapefruit taste throughout. Tend to be finicky about whites, but I like this one! Read more

Rather subdued on the nose with a smoky, stemmy quality and an earthy core to the waxy fruit that hints at melon and white cherry. There’s also a touch of a roast meat quality to the nose. Chunky fruit in the mouth with decent acidity but this feels a bit clumsy though there are nice hints of kiwi and apricot on the palate that lead to a bright, light finish that is marred a bit by the relatively high alcohol. 88pts

This is one of my favorite Sauvignon Blancs. Previous vintages have been lovely, ripe, and luscious, and the 2007 is no different. The nose is citrusy lemon-lime, but in the mouth there is a strong presence of honeydew melon. The 2007 feels a little hot and even peppery, but overall a great wine. As if that weren’t enough, it is organic and biodynamic. See my full review at: http://winedinewith.us/2009/11/05/wine-review-2007-quivira-sauvignon-blanc-fig-tree-vineyard/

A beautifully aromatic Sauvignon Blanc that shows aromas of grapefruit and key limes. This is a refreshing white wine with a very dry finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

This vineyard, named for a majestic 130-year old Black Mission fig tree that stands amongst the vines, became certified 100% organic and Biodynamic® in late 2005. Located at the confluence of two waterways on the Quivira estate, Dry Creek and Wine Creek, the soil has an extensive gravel layer due to its proximity to the creeks, creating a well drained site and yielding grapes with a unique flavor profile. This 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is quite a departure from our previous vintages in several ways. Looking to capture a more vivid and pure varietal character, I eliminated the practice of partial barrel fermentation and instead used only temperature controlled stainless steel. I also chose to omit the more neutral Semillon that had been blended in the past, further strengthening the voice of the more aromatic Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Notes:

The resulting wine has an effusive nose of lime blossom and pink grapefruit. Although oysters around the world should quake in their shells with the release of this wine, I hope you will gain only pleasure from it.
