Fresh and lemony, with hints of grass and guava. Great lift on the midpalate with a crisp, clean finish; this wine would match well with fruit and cheese plates, or light meals.
With a sweet finish, this wine is filled with polished flavors of pears, pineapples, guavas, nectarines, honey and dusty spices. Crisp acidity provides balance.
An intriguing style of sauvignon, this is as fat as a scallop, with a leesiness that brings toasted rice to mind. While the texture is broad, the flavors are cool, clean and spicy. Itrsquo;s a balanced white that would work well with wasabi-spiked sushi.
Classic grass, gooseberry and zingy lime flavors have a zesty acidity and a hint of pea blossom and passion fruit. Drink now.

The 2007 Shannon Ridge Sauvignon Blanc reminds me of a snowy winter day in January up at the Shannon Ridge ranch. Since this is the first fruit we pick and it does not get aged in oak, it is also the first wine we bottle from the vintage. In January we generally find ourselves hunkered down in the Shannon Ridge vineyard office making the final adjustments to perfect the Sauvignon Blanc. As we sat diligently working on the blend the first snow storm of the year casually slipped in from the Northern Pacific Ocean bringing a dark gray spectrum of heavy clouds and a burst of cold air. Over the course of the afternoon we watched out the window as the dollar-bill-sized snowflakes fell from the sky. Of course sitting inside was not an option at this point, we were drawn outside by the amazing spectacle. As we stood and watched individual flakes fall from the sky we marveled in the pure splendor of the skies, and felt the sting of the lively snowflakes as they embraced our skin. You may be asking why does the Shannon Ridge 2007 Sauvignon Blanc “remind you of a snowy day in January?" Like the snow in the high county, the Shannon Ridge 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is pure and elegant. The near colorless appearance, electrifying aromatics, and crisp cooling acid, parallel the snow on that cold January day. We present this 2007 Sauvignon Blanc as a preview to a wonderful 2007 vintage of wines from Shannon Ridge. Enjoy the cool crisp Sauvignon Blanc on a hot summer day as a reprieve from the heat for the mind, body and soul as I recall a snowy winter day in January up at the Shannon Ridge ranch. Cheers!
