Our 2009 Mitsuko's Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc entices with its intense and complex aromas of passion fruit, pineapple, melon and dried grass, with undertones of tangerine, grapefruit and flint. The wine possesses vibrant minerality and pitch-perfect acidity counterbalanced by richness, depth and lengthy fruit flavors.
The best Clos Pegase Sauvignon Blanc in years. Made with a little oak, just enough for creaminess, it’s marked by vibrant acidity and complex, lovely flavors of lemongrass, Meyer lemon candy, vanilla, white pepper and the distinct minerality that Carneros white wines often display. Great price for a wine this sophisticated.
Completed in 1987, Clos Pegase was designed to be a temple to wine on a 47 acre Calistoga vineyard. The winery has a total of 450 acres, mostly located in Carneros. The Clos Pegase label features Pegasus, painted circa 1890 by the French artist Redon. This painting is winery owner Jan Shrem's favorite work of art from his extensive private collection.
