Sauvignon Blanc is a white grape that comes from France, around the Bordeaux region. The name translates to mean savage or wild and the "blanc" means white. This grape is great as a single varietal and is also found in many dessert wines. Some sauvignon blanc wines were the first to be bottled with a screw cap. This wine doesn’t age very well. It is now grown all over the world and is known to ripen early. It grows well in cooler and sunny areas as long as it isn’t exposed to over-bearing heat. Before 1970, sauvignon blanc wines were too sweet and weren’t very popular. Because of this unpopularity, Robert Mondavi attempted to make a better version similar to Pouilly Fume and decided to create the name “Fume Blanc” as a marketing scheme. This bold move was successful and this term is continually used to describe the style of the wine. This varietal has hints of citrus and is light and crisp. It is a great white wine alternative to chardonnay which can be heavier in oak. It goes well with light dishes, seafood, salads and poultry.
In making this Sauvignon Blanc from rigorously selected and vinified grapes from the best parcels of the Chilean vineyard, Baron Philippe de Rothschild's winemakers have sought to express an exceptional range of vanilla and tropical fruit aromas and flavors, mingled with toasted notes. The wine will go perfectly with seafood and cheese.
Our Sauvignon Blanc, from the first fruit harvested during our 150th anniversary year, evokes aromas of grapefruit, lime and a hint of tropical passion fruit. Tantalizing flavors of orange blossom and tangy citrus commingle with a sprightly acidity that provides a refreshing finish. As always, night harvests guarantee fruit freshness in our signature style wine.
Winemaker's Notes: This 100% Sauvignon Blanc from our Horse Heaven Vineyard delivers aromas of ripe pear and notes of citrus fruit. The wine was fermented in a combination of oak and stainless steel tanks. The stainless steel fermentation preserved the Sauvignon Blanc's vibrant character and refreshing, crisp quality.
