2011 was a very mild growing season, where the fruit was able to attain great maturity under near ideal conditions. This wine has great length and texture that is backed up by a wonderful, succulent, fresh acidity. It has strong characteristics of white peach, key lime, grapefruit and melon with hints of grass, crème brûlée, and flint. Beautifully balanced and extremely enjoyable!
From the winery: Our Sauvignon Blanc represents what we believe to be the highest expression of this varietal. It’s beautifully Californian, with wonderful structure and acidity. Grapes from a handful of carefully selected vineyards—some familiar, some new—join our Spottswoode Estate fruit in the composition of this wine, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Musque. We strive to create a vibrant, lovely, flavorful wine that stands well on its own but also pairs beautifully with food.
