Notes from the Winemaker:
Our 2019 Joel Gott California Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of pineapple, mango and peach with citrus notes. On the palate, the wine opens with ripe, tropical fruit flavors followed by crisp, refreshing acidity on the mid-palate and a long, clean, balanced finish.
Fruit from the marine influenced Monterey County AVA offer tropical aromatics, while grapes from Lake County contribute citrus notes to the wine. Napa and Sonoma vineyards lend good concentration and flavor to the blend.Vineyards planted on the rolling plains in Santa Barbara’s Happy Canyon appellation experience morning coastal fog and afternoon winds, giving the wine its tropical aromas and crisp, clean minerality. Blending fruit from varied growing regions across California creates a balanced, food-friendly wine.
Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Ratings & Reviews92 Points & #21 Top 100 of 2020 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Lemon blossom, Asian pear, lime sherbet and candied orange peel notes are pure, fragrant and juicy in this silky white, with intensity and a lift of freshness on the finish from an accent of lemon verbena. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes." - MW
92 Points - Tasting Panel:
"Vineyards across California influence this stunning white: From Monterey, Lake, Napa, and Sonoma counties to the warm Happy Canyon AVA of Santa Barbara, all have a hand in its citrus notes, minerality, vibrancy, and depth of character. Tropical aromas of kiwi meld with the varietally iconic scent of white grapefruit as jasmine weaves through sweet notes of pine nuts. Flavors of ripe pineapple and lemon custard impart texture, while acidity contributes to a dignified presence."
Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Full bodied and mouthfilling, this is a big, rich wine that lavishes ripe apple, melon and vanilla flavors on a rather viscous texture. Jim Gordon" - (9/1/2020)
