Year after year, this standout Sauvignon Blanc honors the varietal’s clean aromas and flavors. Dry Creek Valley experiences enormous temperature swings between warm days and cold nights. In this ideal climate for Sauvignon Blanc, the grapes reach full maturity while retaining exceptional acidity.
Sauvignon Blanc from Quivira’s Wine Creek Ranch provides the foundation to the final blend. They harvest the grapes at a range of ripenesses to show a spectrum of aromas. Early pickings capture characteristics of fresh cut green grass and hay. As harvest progresses, Sauvignon Blanc displays tropical fruit flavors and floral aromas. The final wine is a complex, refreshingly crisp mélange of tropical fruit, mixed citrus, and melon aromas. Flavors quickly expand to include Meyer lemon, pineapple, honeydew melon, freshly cut grass, and green olive. The round, pleasant entry gives way to an uncommonly full mid-palate and long, flavorful finish.
