Fiddlehead Happy Canyon Sauvignon Blanc 2014$26.00Add to cart
The Happy Canyon label not only pays tribute to a unique AVA, but also signifies the signature style of Sauvignon Blanc at Fiddlehead. The place, Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA is home to six founding vineyards planted 1996-2001, and is located on the eastern edge of the Santa Ynez AVA. Morning fog lifts to plentiful sunshine, and it is the ideal home to Bordeaux (including Sauvignon Blanc) and Rhone varietals. During Prohibition, a simple alcohol was produced in Happy Canyon and legend has it that folks would “take a trip up Happy Canyon” to purchase the beverage…and the name stuck. In the Fiddlehead Portfolio, it is the most versatile, richer-style Sauvignon Blanc, “with a French twist”. It marries fresh, ripe fruit with creamy, silky textures, much like a Pouilly Fumé style of the Loire Valley. This Loire Valley inspired wine is most noted for its layers of aromatics and layers of texture. It flaunts a dried apricot perfume, with background hints of oregano and coriander. There is a rich touch of vanilla spice that is melded with Anjou pear and orange blossoms. Grapefruit and honey highlight a plush and lasting finish. A true cornucopia of flavor! I even picked up a bit of crème brulee, which I’ve never tasted before in a Sauvignon Blanc. Awesome! 1306 cases made.
Tangent Sauvignon Blanc 2017$20.00Add to cart
Owned and farmed by the Niven family, the Paragon Vineyard in the Edna Valley of California provides the grapes for this wine. Originally planted in 1973, these are most likely the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines south of the North Coast. With the Pacific Ocean lying only fi ve miles to the west, its infl uence creates one of the longest growing seasons in the state. As in the cool climates of both France and New Zealand, the grapes leisurely ripen, creating fruit of structured minerality and good acid backbone. A rare example of a cool climate Sauvignon Blanc, the Tangent Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is bright and racy. Full of flavors of zesty citrus, guava and passionfruit with a chalky minerality and a hint of salinity. This wine highlights all the benefi ts of their cool climate estate vineyard, ideal for growing this vibrant varietal. We like to think of this wine as the perfect combination of Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand and Sancerre – bursting with fruit flavors and balanced with the perfect amount of racy acidity. 91 Points Tasting Panel.
Long Meadow Ranch Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Rutherford, Napa Valley$24.00Add to cart
Long Meadow Ranch employs an integrated organic farming system using simple, sustainable methods. Each part of the Ranch contributes to the health of the whole. Vineyards and wine making, olive orchards and olive oil making, cattle and horse breeding all work together in complementary fashion, as do the egg-laying poultry flock and the organic vegetable gardens. All crops are certified organic.
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc was harvested in two different periods – one at lower sugars and one at higher sugars. All of the grapes were ripe, but each pick offered different nuances. We loved all the separate wine lots and enjoyed the synergy of blending. This wine has classic LMR varietal freshness and charm; it’s difficult to believe this wine was grown in Cabernet country. Its fruits range from citrus to kiwi to just-ripe peach. The salty and mineral characteristics which grow out of our terroir and cold fermentations have become signature and reliable. The finish is crisp, full-of-esters and balanced.
