2019 Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Dry Creek Valley
Enticing pale yellow color with hints of green around the edges and a spicy, floral bouquet. 2019 is a citrus-focused vintage, a direct result of extended hangtime, with Meyer lemon, white grapefruit, lime zest, and mandarin orange blossom. Additional tropical notes of pineapple, guava, lychee, and white peach come from the Musqué clone. A very subtle grassiness and
honeyed green almond engage on the palate along with bright minerality in the crisp finish. Theres a raciness to this wine that we find utterly compelling. Enjoy it now and through 2023.
Our mouth-quenching Sauvignon Blanc is perfect with a roasted tomato and goat cheese tart, freshly shucked oysters, petrale sole, Pad Thai noodles, or Kung Pao chicken.
