Inspired by the Sauvignon wines of northern Italy, our Sauvignon Blanc pays homage to the tart and delicious everyday wine workhorse of the region of Friuli. While it is difficult to recreate these specific Italian wines anywhere else in the world, Sauvignon is our California interpretation of these great Italian white wines. The grapes for this wine are farmed at distinct vineyards in Napa and Sonoma where the temperatures are both the warmest during the day and the coolest at night. That diversity helps us produce a wine of intensity and freshness, and as such we tip-our-Sauvignon-hat to our fellow winemakers in northeast Italy.
"This is a really well-balanced, engaging and fun Sauvignon Blanc that, alongside its light and lively attitude, shows elements of depth and complexity not often found in this white varietal. Nuanced notes of lemon, lime, green apple skins, beachy-sand salinity, jasmine flower, nasturtium leaf, cut grass and dewy lawn daisy are carried by an energetic acidity yet simultaneously tamed by a smooth, almost glycerol-like texture. The finish is long and begs for another sip to be had. " 91 Points Wine Enthusiast
