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.
