Product Description

Edna Valley Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is made by blending wines made from various vineyard blocks and by a variety of vinification techniques. Among these are fermentation in one- and three-year-old French oak barrels and fermentation in small stainless steel tanks. Selected yeasts bring out an intense grapefruit aroma and contribute to a fuller mouthfeel during sur lie (yeast) contact, both in tank and in barrel.Our 2006 Sauvignon Blanc offers vibrant aromas and flavors of grapefruit, guava and peach with a hint of lime peel. A pleasing, crisp acidity, full body and long finish make this an ideal food wine. Enjoy it paired with fresh oysters, shrimp salad, lemon chicken and fresh goat cheese.


Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Region: Edna Valley

Region Description:

Edna Valley is directly south of the coastal town of San Louis Obispo. The region was gained recognition in the 1970's for its chardonnay. Gew├╝rztraminer and pinot noir have been planted as well but the results have not been as rewarding as the chardonnay. Low hills on three sides give the valley an open cup shape that collects moisture laden air from the Pacific Ocean. The cool, steady temperatures and fog cover result in a very long growing season producing very unique wine.
