Fig Tree Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley
750 ML - $24.00
All the elements of the world's best Sauvignon Blancs converge at Fig Tree Vineyard. The site is located at the confluence of two rivers, Wine Creek and Dry Creek. The wine's mineral freshness comes from the rocky soils that have been scoured over millennia. The rare Musqué clone, which adds complexity and aromatic lift, is planted alongside California's classic Sauvignon Blanc. Simply put, the right grape is grown in the right place with Fig Tree Sauvignon Blanc.
The Musqué clone contributes heightened floral aromas that tantalize even before you taste the wine. The color is a pale yellow with an attractive green tinge that is the first indication of the wines youth. We harvested this vintage across a spectrum of ripeness to capture the unique aromas and flavors available at each stage of maturation. Racy, green grassiness and tropical flavors are deftly balanced by brisk acidity and the mid-palate concentration. The round, smooth finish results from the blend of tank and barrel aged lots. The one-of-a-kind, single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc yields a harmonious and enchanting wine.
