User Reviews for Quivira Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley Fig Tree

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose of this vintage is strikingly similar to the wines of the Loire, with a notable, yet mild, grassiness reminiscent of “fresh hay”. A small percentage of the Musque clone adds lifted floral notes with subtle citrus and tropical fruit tones. On the palate, dried fig and a lovely lemon zest quality emerge, and the assertive acidity is nicely balanced by a textured mid-palate. The bracing acidity of this wine makes it a good match for slightly richer foods. Try it with a goat cheese tart or richer seafood dishes. This wine will stand up to a year or two of bottle age.
