Schug Sauvignon Blanc 2007
This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of vineyards from very different microclimates in Sonoma County. Grapes grown in the cooler Carneros district contribute spice and acidity for excellent food compatibility, while the warmer-grown Bennett Valley component contributes lush fruit flavors reminiscent of melon, honeysuckle and grapefruit. These flavors are enhanced by the creamy richness of fermentation and aging on the yeast ("sur lie"). This wine finishes with a clean, crisp acidity.
Metallic nose, buttery shellfish on the mouth, this wine has a long body with an astringent release, with salty apricot, raspberry, meat, and styrofoam.
