Great Sauvignon Blanc is grown worldwide in areas such as the Loire and
Bordeaux regions of France, warmer California appellations, the southern part of
New Zealand and South Africa. Some of the most recognized California Sauvignon
Blanc is grown in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek and Alexander valleys.
This unoaked wine reflects the bright varietal character for which Dry Creek Valley
Sauvignon Blanc is known. Light and refreshing, it fills the nose with aromas of
green apple, lemongrass and melon. Vibrant flavors of pineapple, white peach and
pear combine with crisp acidity before leading to a pure, clean finish.
This balanced and elegant Sauvignon Blanc is a versatile food wine capable of
complementing virtually any dish, especially seafood. Serve it with a classic
pairing such raw oysters on the half shell, or with ceviche or fish tacos. Or try it
with a less-expected entree such as pasta with pesto.
