Trione Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were harvested early in the morning and delivered to the winery cool. They were then pressed whole cluster, imparting a vibrant, green hue to the juice. After settling clean, the juice was then racked and additions were made prior to inoculation with VL3 yeast. This particular yeast enhances the characteristic aromas of gooseberry found in Sauvignon Blanc. The juice was fermented to dryness in just over two weeks at around 50˚F. The wine was then racked to five neutral French oak barrels, with the balance transferred to a stainless steel tank. The wine remained in barrel and tank for three months, at which time it was racked, blended, finished and bottled.

For 35 harvests, for 35 Septembers, our family has carefully farmed and managed some of the finest grapes in Sonoma County. With painstaking devotion to the land, three generations – Henry Trione, sons Mark and Vic, and Mark’s daughter Denise – have developed a reputation for producing premium grapes. Our wines are characteristic of the appellations in which they are grown: the cool, slow-ripening flavors of the Russian River Valley and the rich, dark-berry essence of the Alexander Valley. Over these many harvest seasons, we have owned and managed more than 700 acres of the best grapes and soils in these highly respected Sonoma County appellations. We have learned to balance and blend the gifts of nature with state-of-the-art winemaking. Our grapes have been the foundation of many award-winning wines. Now we bring our grapes to you in wines bottled under our own label, Trione Vineyards & Winery. We are passionate about family and tradition, especially traditions that include good food and good wine. Our vineyards, our wines – and our winery – have been a labor of love, the culmination of our family’s long tradition of dedication to Sonoma County. Please share a bottle of wine from the Trione Vineyards and Winery with your family and friends, and taste our commitment to excellence. Salute! Read less

Good with lamb



Tasting Notes:

Aromatic, vibrant, alluring nose. Seductive on the palate. The wine finishes silky smooth, with tropical notes and peach nectar. Enjoyable for the next one to two years.
