[ Home > BV Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2011 ]|
The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc teases the senses with a fragrant bouquet of passion fruit, kiwi, and gooseberry. Tropical fruit flavors focus the lithe and nimble mid-palate accentuated by bright grapefruit and flinty high notes. This marriage of fruit and lively acids lingers on the back of the tongue for a long, smooth finish. It is an enjoyable, strait-forward wine to enjoy as an aperitif with tapenades, charcuteries, and aged cheeses.
With roots in New Zealand, winemaker Jim Corkin aimed for the flavors and aromas he fondly remembered tasting in his homeland. He chose a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel to focus the tropical fruit and kiwi flavors while retaining bright acidity and inviting grapefruit highlights. Regular lees stirring was utilized to build body and tame the inherent riotous flavors, creating a well-balanced wine with a smooth fruit finish.
