Sonoma Coast Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Coast Laguna Vista Vineyards 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Sonoma Coast Vineyards produces handcrafted wines exclusively from the Sonoma Coast appellation - wines of exceptional quality and character that will be recognized as the highest representation of excellence. Focusing on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a small production of cold climate Syrah, Sonoma Coast Vineyards makes wines that embody the qualities and character that have shown the Sonoma Coast appellation to be one of the great growing regions of the world for these varietals. Growing grapes in the dramatically cool western reaches of Sonoma County is complex and demanding - but truly worth the risk. The resulting fruit produces wines that are elegant and intensely structured. Wine writer Robert Parker identifies the Sonoma Coast appellation as "where world class Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays are being made that are every bit as complex and complete as the greatest wines of France." (Savor Wine Country Magazine, Fall 2002) Under the direction of winemaker Anthony Austin, Sonoma Coast Vineyards wines display elegance, harmony, and balance. The 2002 vintage represented Anthony's 32nd harvest. Having studied under and assisted famed winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, Anthony went on to become the founding winemaker at Firestone Vineyards. During his ten years at Firestone Vineyards, he helped to elevate the Santa Barbara region and Firestone Vineyards to new heights. Anthony's Austin Cellars wines won broad international acclaim and remain highly sought after collectibles. Anthony brings his vast knowledge and experience to Sonoma Coast Vineyards' mission of producing exceptional wines from the renowned Sonoma Coast appellation. By carefully selecting the vineyards and working closely with each grower, Anthony obtains ripe, balanced fruit from these climate-challenged vineyards. His love for his craft, and the character of the appellation, is reflected in every glass of wine he produces. Read less

This California Sauvignon Blanc exhibits bright gooseberry aromas along with ripe white peach. The palate is lush with tropical fruit flavors honeydew melon and pineapple. It has a wonderful depth and concentration finishing with a crisp refreshing acidity. The wine shows a lovely fullness and the lingering finish is bright and satisfying. Shrimp kabobs marinated in lime and cilantro would pair nicely with this wine.
