Schug Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Coast 2013
The well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from cooler vineyards in the southern end of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The Hi-Vista Vineyard in western Carneros and the Grossi Vineyard north of Petaluma contribute spice and bright tangy acidity. The Leveroni Vineyard south of Sonoma contributes the unique floral character of the Sauvignon "musque" clone. The resulting blend has a bouquet of nectarine and grapefruit zest, leading to lush fruit flavors of kiwi, lime, and grapefruit. It finishes with a refreshing minerality and zesty acidity that makes it an ideal accompaniment to a wine range of soups, salads and shellfish dishes.
Editorial Reviews for Schug Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Coast
Medium intensity peach aromas with light grapefruit and lemon zest to follow. Meaty and juicy flavors of lemon, peach, pear and green apple mingle on the firm and intense palate. There's enough balance and structure here to stand up to a variety of foods and flavors, while being interesting enough to drink on its own. Very good and well made wine.
