Rodney Strong Sauvignon Blanc Estate Charlotte's Home 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh, bright and crisp, this quintessential Sauvignon Blanc is a wine of balance, richness and aromatic complexity. The Alexander Valley fruit provides the backbone, while the ocean-cooled Russian River Valley fruit offers zesty citrus notes of grapefruit and lime blossoms, with a slightly herbaceous quality. The warmer Dry Creek Valley fruit gives the wine a rip honeydew melon and tropical character

Rodney Strong Vineyards:
  Founded in 1959 by Rodney Strong, Rodney Strong Vineyards has one of the richest histories in Sonoma County. It was the first vineyard to plant Chardonnay in Chalk Hill (1965), and the first to release it (1977). It was also the first to plant Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley (1968) and the first to make a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon in Sonoma County (released in 1974). ... Read more
  Founded in 1959 by Rodney Strong, Rodney Strong Vineyards has one of the richest histories in Sonoma County. It was the first vineyard to plant Chardonnay in Chalk Hill (1965), and the first to release it (1977). It was also the first to plant Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley (1968) and the first to make a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon in Sonoma County (released in 1974). Success didn’t come overnight: hard work and perseverance, coupled with a strong business sense and tender loving care, allowed the vineyard to prosper. When Tom Klein purchased the vineyard in 1989, a major overhaul was planned, and in a short 10 years, sales grew over 600% to 500,000 cases. Today, Rick Sayre, David Ramey, Greg Morthole, and Justin Seidenfeld, winemakers at Rodney Strong Vineyards, source grapes from over 1,000 acres of vines throughout Sonoma County, across 14 estate vineyards from Alexander Valley, the Russian River Valley, Chalk Hill, and Sonoma Coast. All of these high-quality grapes have allowed the winery to become the success that it is today. Read less

This is freshly lemony on the nose with a touch of herbal sweetness and a hint of green. Very fruit forward in the mouth and showing a tropical blend of pineapple, mango and some more stone fruit notes of dried apricot mixing with the lemon that carries through from the aromas. Classic, clean and refreshing with just that touch of earth on the finish adding some complexity.
