about this wine
This standout Sauvignon Blanc represents Quivira Vineyards’ philosophy of intentional wines that reflect varietal purity. Quivira honors Sauvignon Blanc’s clean aromas and flavors. The nose and palate are extraordinarily captivating. It’s a complex, refreshingly crisp mélange that is not muddled by excessive ripeness or high-manipulation winemaking.
at the winery
Harvesting at multiple maturity levels is a signature technique for Quivira’s beloved Sauvignon Blanc. We purposefully pursue a spectrum of aromas and flavors. The 2015 vintage shows classic yet subtle grassiness complemented by intense regional tropical and citrus notes. We ferment and age the wine in 80% stainless steel tanks with the balance aged in neutral French oak and new acacia wood. The wood aging adds a layered textured mouthfeel that nicely buffers our Sauvignon Blanc’s natural acidity.
in the glass
Bright and intensely flavorful fruit is front and center: mango, pineapple, passionfruit, and guava come to mind. That palate is crisp and leads into a mouthwatering finish. The balanced alcohol keeps luring you back for another sip, then another glass. From goat cheese appetizers to shucking oysters, it’s a clean, fruit-forward white for any occasion.
