    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 vintage marks a bit of a departure for our estate-grown Sauvignon Blanc. In past vintages, Gainey added a significant portion of Semillon to the blend, which helped round out the wine, but tempered its pure expression of Sauvignon varietal character.

    The 2010 is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and, as such, displays more of a piquant, zesty character for which the variety is known. That said, you will still find the fresh, creamy, citrus guava, melon, mineral and vanilla scents characteristic of Gainey Sauvignon Blanc, along with a hint of gooseberry. In the mouth, the wine delivers rich, round, guava, grapefruit, lime, lemon drop and honeydew melon flavors with a hint of gooseberry and a refreshing minerality in its long, grapefruit-y finish.

    Sumptuous, yet vibrant, the 2010 Sauvignon Blanc is delicious on its own, but will also beautifully accompany your favorite seafood, poultry and salad dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A lovely wine that continues Gainey's string of successful bottlings. It's finely crisp in acidity, with a refreshing mouthfeel carrying ripe pineapple, lime and kiwiflavors. Best Buy.
