2015 Sauvignon Blanc

2015 Sauvignon Blanc

Sourced just north of Napa from the same vineyard used by celebrity winemakers for super premium cult wines, our Sauvignon Blanc starts neutral on the palate. Soon after, its distinctive herbal-floral and citrus flavors emerge, as well as stony and chalky mineral notes, offering layers and complexity indicative of its preparation in a classic Loire style. The finish is equally distinctive, offering flavors of grapefruit zest and pineapple. This wine’s quiet intensity makes it a thrilling departure from the plainer, grassier flavors of the typical New Zealand style used in most wines of this category.

Pairs well with light, fresh flavors, including:

  • Fresh cheese, goat cheeses
  • Salads: springtime salads, fresh peas, herb salads
  • Mediterranean foods (fresh)
  • Sweet pea ravioli
  • Labne
  • Tandoori bread
  • Roasted/grilled avocado
  • Chopped kale salad Jean-Georges (kale Caesar; anchovy)
  • Lighter savory fare like shellfish, crudo, and oysters
