Food Pairings for Sonoma Coast Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
After 5 months in barrel, the lots were blended and bottled on March 8th. The two distinct clones deliver a dramatic and complex flavor profile. Clone 1 provides the traditional profile of citrus and lends to the high acidity. The Sauvignon Musque provides depth and shows in the range of pear, fig, and pineapple while adding a rich tropical profile. The sur lees treatment is very evident and felt on the palate as a creamy trait with a presence of minerality. The stainless lot adds freshness, varietal accuracy and the all important bright acidity. This wine is an ideal aperitif wine as well as a delicious companion to food including fresh or grilled fish and seafood, particularly oysters, crab, and lobster along with grilled or broiled chicken dishes and a wide range of cheeses. There is a highly fragrant and pretty youthfulness showing in the first 30 days since bottling and this wine will develop much further in the coming months and for years beyond as the fruit profile marries with the distinctive characteristics of terroir and diverse winemaking techniques. Our inspiration is driven by the unique fruit and the opportunity to marry both old and new world winemaking practices which result in a truly distinctive wine.
