Casablanca Valley Sauvignon Blanc has earned a reputation for quality in recent years. The cool climate, heavily influenced by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, provides excellent conditions for this variety. This Sauvignon Blanc comes from the vineyards of the Nimbus estate in the section of Casablanca Valley that is closest to the sea. The vineyards are densely planted with 1,375 vines per acre on sandy loam soils. The naturally low vigor and climatic conditions are essential factors for obtaining a Sauvignon Blanc with a high concentration of fine aromas and exceptional natural acidity. The grapes are hand-picked in the coolest hours of the day to protect the grapes, which undergo a rigorous double selection upon reaching the winery. Globe trotting enologist extraordinaire Nick Goldschmidt consults here and the wines live up to his reputation. Wine Enthusiast Magazine described this succulent white as "Green and spunky on the nose, with light citrus aromas and nothing forced, sour or funky. The palate is full and a little creamy, with just enough acidic kick. Tastes of green melon, lime and banana. Lasting acidity provides pulse to the finish."
