The combination of the two distinct clones delivers a very complex flavor profile. Clone 1 provides the traditional profile of citrus and lends to the high acidity. The Sauvignon Musque clone provides a depth of fruit flavors with a range of pear, fig and pineapple. The separated lot treatments are evident in the creamy character from the barrels and the varietal freshness and bright acidity of the tank-aged wine. Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is an ideal aperitif wine and a delicious companion to food including fresh or grilled seafood, particularly oysters, crab and lobster, along with grilled or broiled chicken dishes and a wide range of cheeses. Our inspiration for this wine comes from the unique Sonoma Coast and the opportunity to marry old and new world winemaking practices, resulting in a truly distinctive wine.
This sauvignon has the fatness of gooseberries and litchi nuts. Its firm edge of lemongrass will accent gingery Cantonese dishes, like steamed flounder.
