Bright citrus and floral aromas introduce our Sauvignon Blanc. In the mouth, it is fresh and enduring, providing a good, but not heavy, volume. This Old World-style Sauvignon Blanc offers subtle minerality and notes of grapefruit and lime. The wine’s acid is both balanced and integrated, giving it an elegant softness.
At Benziger Family Winery, we are dedicated to winemaking that reveals the true character of the vineyard, the varietal and the vintage in certified-sustainable, -organically grown and-Biodynamic® wines defined by individuality and the passion of the people who make them. This wine was made with grapes grown by certified sustainable farming methods. Our sustainable philosophy promotes natural vineyard management, restoration of the land and biodiversity on the estate. We believe these practices result in wines that reflect the authentic flavors, aromas and character of the vineyard.
Grapes from the North Coast appellation, a rather large AVA, are harvested from multiple vineyards chosen for their excellent site location and soil makeup. Each site contributes its own flare to create this complex, deeply layered wine. In the vineyard, canopy management and crop thinning are instrumental in achieving the perfect fruit-to-acid balance. It is aged in 100% stainless steel drums and left on its lees to develop more complexity and mouthfeel.
