2012 'Press' Sauvignon Blanc 750ml -
$12.00 Retail - PRP Price $9.60 - The Sauvignon Blanc grape thrives in Mendocino County. Lots of summer days in the upper 90s combined with cool nights in the 50s make for great grapes and ultimately great wine. The hot days add sugar to the maturing berries while the cold nights allow the grapes to retain more of their natural acids. By early September the grapes are typically ready for harvest and then the press.
The wonderful 2012 vintage yielded picture perfect Sauvignon Blanc grapes with amazing concentration of flavor. Harvested at first light, the hand-picked clusters were loaded into the press and gently squeezed. The resulting juice was cold fermented in a stainless steel tank to preserve its aromatic intensity. We bottled this wine early to capture its fresh and vibrant nature.
The 2012 Press Sauvignon Blanc is an exuberant wine that delivers lively aromas of citrus, melon, passion fruit, with a hint of minerality and herbaceousness. This wine is as much a joy to taste as it is to smell. On the palate you are greeted with richness and a multitude of fruit flavors. Firm acidity holds the wine together, provides length, and persistent mouth feel. Enjoy this wine anytime with anyone and consider parings such as oysters, artichoke dip, asparagus, or your favorite summer salad.
