2022 Fig Tree Sauvignon Blanc
All the elements of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc converge at Fig Tree Vineyard. The site is located at the confluence of two waterways, Wine Creek and Dry Creek. The wine's mineral freshness comes from the alluvial, rocky soils that have been scoured over millennia. The rare Musqué clone adds complexity and aromatic lift. Simply put, the right grape + the right place = Fig Tree Sauvignon Blanc.
The wine is a beautiful pale-yellow color that is star bright with a tinge of green. The nose has classic Sauvignon Blanc notes of grapefruit, underripe pear and lemon. Add to these aromas of hibiscus flower and just a whisp of almond macaroon and toasted coconut. The palate has eyebrow raising acidity up front which rounds out seamlessly through the middle. Flavors of lemon bar, clementine and kumquat are wrapped in river rock minerality with freshness akin to a tropical rainstorm. A beautiful expression of our cool microclimate in Dry Creek Valley.
