This 100% Sauvignon Blanc was made from grapes that were certified organic and Biodynamic® at Grgich hills cool American Canyon and Carneros vineyards, not far from the San Francisco Bay. Complex and rich, this wine is packed with layers of tropical aromas including white peaches, grapefruit and lemon oil. With its crisp, refreshing texture, hint of mineral and long finish, this versatile, flavorful white wine is a great companion to grilled shrimp, lemon risotto or a refreshing salad.
"A light-bodied, graceful wine that has a zingy acidity and fresh-cut grass notes, with refreshing and intense lemon-lime and melon flavors and a spicy, mouthwatering finish. Drink now. 11,800 cases made. –MW" -Rated 89, Wine Spectator
"When allowed a moment or two to throw off its initial aromatic impressions of matchstick, this moderately fruity, mildly grassy wine focuses on a nice mix of melons and hard-charging herbs. It sports a bit more richness than many and shows fine length and overall balance, and another year in the bottle should prove an enormous boon." -Rated 90, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wines
