Light straw color with the brilliance of sunlight through a forest canopy. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapples and orange
peel. Flavors of pineapples and honeydew melon that are creamy and viscous on the palate. Nice crisp acid that

Longboard 2019 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc$21.00
Longboard 2019 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc is the twelth vintage of this classical varietal. Winemaker/Owner (and surfer) Oded Shaked started making this wine after he realized that when he went to lunch, that is the wine he reached out to most often to start a springtime or summer meal. The Russian River Valley grows Sauvignon Blanc that shows tropical fruit but retains enough minerality to keep the wine balanced and vibrant. The wine was minimally processed, with only a small fraction spending time in older (neutral) oak barrels, just enough to add a light layer of creaminess over the core of pear, lychee and citrus flavors. There is a slight floral (Honeysuckle) note in the wine too. This style of Sauvignon Blanc aims to layer the minerality we love in wines from Europe with the great fruit character we are blessed with in California. When released, the wine shows mainly tropical fruit character, balanced by a lively acidity. As it ages over the next few years, some honey and apple pie character will start developing and adding richness and depth to the wine.
Paired with a fresh green salad with fennel shavings and succulent ruby grapefruit sectuibs or with your favorite fresh seafood (try sashimi or a spicy Thai dish), this wine has proved to be quite versatile in pairing with imaginative cuisine.
Recently voted as the number one best place to live in the world, we can see why. From the golden beaches of the north, to the sub-tropical forests which span the valleys, to the snowcapped mountains in the south. New Zealand is an incredibly diverse country which is exciting to explore and see what can be achieved. Sauvignon Blanc has found its
natural home here, and Locations intends to see how best to represent and pay homage to this noble grape and country by producing a wine that is true and representative of what this country has to offer. The Locations NZ starts off with a brilliant pale yellow reminiscent of white currants; the wine opens with an intense bouquet of gooseberries, feijoas, and ripe tropical fruits. The bright entry of fresh cut grass and preserved lemon lead to passionfruit pot de crème showcasing a long nish of fresh herbs and clean minerality.
