The wine's mineral freshness comes from the alluvial, rocky soils that have been scoured over millennia. The rare Musqué clone adds complexity and aromatic lift. Simply put, the right grape + the right place = Fig Tree Sauvignon Blanc.

The Wine

Star bright in the glass with the color of pale straw, the wine exudes fruit aromas of Meyer lemon, key lime, apricot and fig leaf. These are complimented by non fruit notes of white flowers, jalapeno, gravel and freshly watered grass. In the mouth the Fig Tree explodes with tart lemon, lime and tangerine. High acidity is tempered with river rock minerality, white flowers and orange pith which changes to a fleshy, ripe tangerine on the finish.

 

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Vibrant and expressive, with honeysuckle, litsea oil and lemon verbena notes up front, plus a core of citrus and pineapple as well as a hint of beeswax on a supple frame. Delivers generous spicy details that linger on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. 1,465 cases made." -MW (4/30/23)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Racy acidity and vibrant herb and citrus flavors shine in this light- to medium-bodied wine that has classic Sauvignon character. Freshness shows in the snap pea, celery and parsley flavors accented by lemon zest." -JIM GORDON (3/1/23)

91 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
A slightly deeper straw color, the 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Fig Tree Vineyard is ripe with redcurrant, salted grapefruit, and flinty wet stone. Medium-bodied with good concentration, this is a very nice white, with good concentration throughout, a fresh, chalky texture, and savory notes of chive, ripe green apple, and lime blossom. Drink it over the next few years. I’m really impressed with this wine, which reminds me of some of the Sauvignon Blanc from Friuli.
