Zesty grapefruit, citrus, fig, melon, passion fruit and pineapple notes highlight this Sauvignon Blanc. Hints of lemon verbena add a fresh floral-herbal scent the signature of Sauvignon Blanc to the bright aromas and crisp, fruity flavors.
Wine maker notes
Temperature variation is crucial to Sauvignon Blanc, and the warm, sunny days and cool nights of the Central Coast provide the essential conditions for maximum flavor development in this varietal. A majority of the fruit came from the South Hart Vineyard, our estate vineyard in San Benito County. Located “down-valley” along the riverbed, this valley-floor vineyard experiences very cool night-time temperatures, which encourage complex orange, lychee and passion fruit flavors with mild minerality and herbal character. The wine’s ripe, juicy pineapple notes herald from the slightly warmer Paso Robles region and are balanced by Monterey’s honeydew, citrus and grassy aromas.

Food pairing
A lovely, refreshing wine to serve as an aperitif or paired with seafood dishes, such as cioppino or spicy Thai seafood soup.
