Our Fig Tree Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc seems to have settled into its identity over the last several vintages. The short crop level this year gave us very concentrated flavors leaning more to the fig and melon side of the spectrum as opposed to the lemon and grass side. The mineral notes that distinguish this bottling are nicely framed in the background but with a bit more fatness to support it. While it is a joy to drink on its own as a warm summer day draws to a close, it will truly shine with herbed chicken, dishes with a simple cream sauce or pretty much any creature from the sea.
Nicely brisk and clean in acidity, this racy wine whisks through and cleanses the palate. Along the way, it leaves bright flavors of lemons, limes, grapefruits, orange blossom and honeysuckle, with a slightly tart touch of gooseberry. A very nice, unoaked wine.
