Longboard 2018 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc$21.00Add to cart
Longboard 2018 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.
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.
Leah Jorgensen Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Rogue Valley, OR$24.00Add to cart
The Leah Jorgensen Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is delightful and refreshing wine and atypical in all the right ways. Intensely aromatic, it conveys a lush mix of honeysuckle, sweet hay, smoke, lime and honeydew melon. And that's before you take the first sip. The low alcohol and bright acidity set it up for a wide range of poultry, pasta and seafood options, and anything with goat cheese is sure-fire. Perfect with Spinach Salad and Warm Goat Cheese.
