Banshee Sauvignon Blanc 2019$25.00
Banshee Wines was founded by three friends from the Midwest and East Coast who shared a passion for wine and a lifelong dream of owning their own winery. Their fascination with wine started early in life. While their peers were drinking Milwaukee’s Best, they had an afﬁnity towards collecting European wines and hosting dorm room wine tastings. Post-college, each pursued a career in the wine industry, ranging from importing wines, to winemaking, to distribution and sales. When their paths ultimately converged in San Francisco in 2009, they pooled their money together to make the ﬁrst vintage of Banshee Wines. After a few years, they migrated up to Healdsburg, where they’ve developed strong relationships with the owners and growers of some of the best and most coveted vineyards in Sonoma, working in lock step with them to produce wines of depth, purity and balance. They strive to make wines with the complexity and deliciousness of those found at the very top of the quality and price scale, but at a price that is affordable for everyone and not just the uber-wealthy.
The Banshee Sauvignon Blanc 2019 comes from a combination of vineyards in the Russian River and Dry Creek valleys. These areas are perfect for the style of Sauvignon Blanc we all love – a combination of sufficient daytime warmth to develop exuberant fruit flavors and plenty of morning/evening coolness to preserve lip smacking structure and vital tart and green-tinged flavors.
In addition, they like to utilize the charms of the musque´ variation of Sauvignon Blanc to highlight the lifted perfume and floral aspects it brings. About 30% of this wine is powered up by musque´ (think X-Men).
A fragrant nose of floral citrus blossom. Flavors of white peach and green apple pack a juicy punch with soft hints of jasmine and lilac. A balanced finish of floral and citrus zest brings bright acidity and a hint of sea salt packs a flavorful finish.
