Quivira makes a flavorful, fresh, well-priced Sauvignon Blanc nearly every year. The 2009 has a nice combination of ripeness, freshness, and energy. Piquant herbal nose, crisp yet full of citrus and subtle pear-like flavors. Refreshing feel, untiring to drink.

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. The short crop level this year gave us very concentrated flavors leaning more to the fig and melon side of the spectrum as opposed to the lemon and grass side. The mineral notes that distinguish this bottling are nicely framed in the background but with a bit more fatness to support it. While it is a joy to drink on its own as a warm summer day draws to a close, it will truly shine with herbed chicken, dishes with a simple cream sauce or pretty much any creature from the sea.
