Quivira Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley Fig Tree 2011
The nose is graceful, but that delicacy is deceiving. One sip and it’s clear this is one of those rare Sauvignon Blancs with structure. The fresh grassiness on the front end flows into bright notes of citrus, green apples and tropical fruits. A perfect wine to pair with shellfish—from a plate of briny oysters to crack crab—but the bright acidity also makes the Fig Tree a great match with a tangy chevre.
