Dry Creek Valley
September 5th 2019
2019 Lee's Sauvignon Blanc
A light straw-colored wine with a beautiful bouquet of white spring flowers. Juicy lime mixes with white peach, nectarine and lychee notes in the mid-palate and finish. A truly refreshing wine, great for the warm summer days ahead, leaves the palate energized and clean.
Rogers Vineyard is nestled in the cooler, southern region of Dry Creek Valley, benefiting from the morning fog that comes off the Russian River. The vineyard was planted in 1998 to clone 1, with some Musqué vines interspersed.
The vineyard was harvested on a foggy morning in early September. The fruit was immediately pressed to tank at the winery before transferring to neutral oak barrels where the primary fermentation took place. The relatively cool fermentation took 22 days before being aged in barrel for 6 months; lees were stirred regularly to flesh out the mid palate. The wine was filtered before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Everything sea food! Enjoy crab, ceviche, oysters, or fish tacos with lime and cilantro.
