2014 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc

Our Sauvignon Blanc is quintessentially Californian, with a beautiful ripeness balanced with wonderful structure and acidity. Grapes from a handful of carefully selected vineyards join our Spottswoode Estate fruit in the composition of this wine. A combination of small, stainless barrels, French oak, and concrete, egg-shaped cuves are utilized in fermentation. This technique results in a complex, rich, and vibrant wine that stands well on its own, pairs beautifully with food, and is further enhanced with a bit of cellaring.

An inviting, expressive nose of white peach, tangerine peel, and guava, with orange blossoms and a wisp of gardenia, gives way to a mouth-filling and round palate of beautifully ripe pears and tangerine cream. Smooth and rich, exhibiting wonderful structure and balance. Compelling and exciting—makes us long for the warm spring and summer days that are forthcoming!
