Quivira Alder Grove Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
The inaugural bottling of our Alder Grove Sauvignon Blanc has been a delightful study in juxtaposition: full-bodied in flavor and mid-palate while still quite refreshing. The aromatics begin with lemon meringue, key lime, and white grapefruit yielding to more grassy and classic tropical fruit notes. A mix of new and neutral barrels add breadth and range as well as a nuanced woodsy-spicy characteristic. While round and smooth, this wine is "light on its feet" from the brisk, natural acidity. Enjoy this wine with a garden salad drizzled with a light vinaigrette, dill goat cheese, mussels, or potstickers. We are confident in the cellaring potential of this wine and encourage you to try some now and hold some for later. Patience will be your reward.
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Alder Grove contains 25% Sémillon this vintage. It has soft, very pretty scents of elderflower, peaches, musk, tarragon, stone and beeswax. Medium-bodied, the palate is rounded and textural, with perfumed fruits refreshed by tangy acidity and a long finish. This more seriously styled Sauvignon Blanc was mostly barrel fermented and aged in a touch of new oak including French and acacia barrels.
Stylish, with a pretty floral detail weaving in and out, adding a honeysuckle overtone to the succulent peach, apricot and lemon zest flavors, set on a smooth frame. Spicy accents show on the juicy finish.
