2019 Pine Ridge Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
Sauvignon Blanc is thought to have originated in the southwest of France as an indigenous grape, the name coming from the French sauvage meaning “wild,” and blanc meaning “white.” Eventually it made its way to Bordeaux, so our winemaking team thought it suitable to produce this white to complement our Cabernet Sauvignons.
Four hours of skin contact increases the aromatics of this wine, giving it beautiful honeysuckle floral, lime, lemongrass, and lemon meringue pie notes. Aging the wine in a combination of oak and stainless steel barrels imparts zesty flavors of citrus/lime. Stirring (bâtonnage) provides soft entry with a creamy texture on the mid-palate. A refreshing, long finish ends with a hint of grapefruit. Enjoy this Sauvignon Blanc with shellfish, fresh goat cheese, or grilled vegetables with herbs.
