Sauvignon Blanc is growing in popularity for its crisp flavor profile and easy food-friendliness. Sutter Home's Sauvignon Blanc has been praised by critics for its bright, fresh honeydew melon, grapefruit, and passion fruit aromas balanced by a pleasant grassiness that brings to mind the classic cool-climate examples of the varietal from New Zealand. Its rich, round flavors suggest melon, lime, and grapefruit finished with spice and minerals. To accentuate its fresh citrus and melon aromas and brisk, slightly grassy favors, the wine is fermented and aged exclusively in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with no oak aging.
Food Pairing: An extremely versatile food wine, it pairs beautifully with shellfish, broiled or pan-fried trout, snapper, sole, herb-roasted chicken, mild cheeses, ethnic and vegetarian fare. Still,you can't go wrong with a fresh Caesar salad with crisp romaine lettuce and a chilled glass of Sutter Home Sauvignon Blanc. This combo is easy to prepare and easy to enjoy.
