Schug Sonoma Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2011


SKU 18320


This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from cooler vineyards in the southern end of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The Hi-Vista vineyard in western Carneros and the Grossi vineyard north of Petaluma contribute spice and bright tangy acidity. The Leveroni vineyard south of Sonoma contributes the unique floral character of the Sauvignon "musque" clone. The resulting blend has a bouquet of nectarine and grapefruit zest, leading to lush fruit flavors of kiwi, lime and grapefruit. It finishes with a refreshing minerality and zesty acidity that makes it an ideal accompaniment to a wide range of soups, salads and shellfish dishes.

Wine EnthusiastAn easy wine-this is zesty in acidity and slightly sweet in orange jam and pineapple flavors. The sweetness is the dominant feature, making it a good partner for slightly sweet foods, like teriyaki dishes.
