Vogelzang Happy Canyon Sauvignon Blanc Sauvignon Blanc Central Coast Santa Ynez Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Elegant intensity is the most appropriate way to describe the 2007 offering. This wine bursts with distinct and clear fruit expressions of pineapple, pear, and lime, complimented with a wonderful minerality reminiscent of Bordeaux blanc that we now recognize as a classic Vogelzang Vineyard aroma profile. The mouthfeel is amazingly broad and rich, yet it maintains an excellent natural acidity true to the varietal. Seamlessly elegant from start to finish.

Vogelzang Vineyards:
The unique area called Happy Canyon by locals as well as wine lovers has matured and developed a site specificity for Bordeaux varietals and warm weather Rhones. Because of its location in the most south-eastern corner of the Santa Ynez valley, the morning fog burns off earlier than the rest of the valley, providing the much-desired longer day of heat.

The unique area called Happy Canyon by locals as well as wine lovers has matured and developed a site specificity for Bordeaux varietals and warm weather Rhones. Because of its location in the most south-eastern corner of the Santa Ynez valley, the morning fog burns off earlier than the rest of the valley, providing the much-desired longer day of heat. The late afternoon "set your clock at 4 PM" marine winds quickly promise to ease the extended heat. In addition to the unique weather pattern, the dirt combines rock and rubble contributing to the low vigor and proper drainage. Finally, the viticultural practices, monitored by the team of Coast Vineyard Care and other mature consultants, guarantee that the most advanced technical practices such as high density, tight pruning, parallel shoot positioning and compost teas, plus good old fashioned common sense, guide the vine and the ground. Planted in 1998, the Vogelzang Vineyard provides the environment ideally suited for producing fine Bordeaux and Rhone wines. Read less

This wine bursts with distinct and clear fruit expressions of pineapple, pear, and lime, complimented with a wonderful minerality. The mouth-feel is amazingly broad and rich, yet it maintains an excellent natural acidity true to the varietal. Creamy, but not heavy, and with exceptional length on the palate, this concentrated white can be savored with steamed clams, halibut with pistachio crust, or oysters Rockefeller spritzed with fresh lemon juice. Serve at about 50-degrees in order to bring out all the flavors.
