2012 lake county sauvignon blanc

 

 

Varietal:                 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Region:                  Lake County, California

Alcohol:                 14.29%

Production:            187 cases produced

Winemaker:            Tim Keith

Sensory Notes:        When served properly chilled at below 45o, this wine is crisp and almost effervescent, exhibiting lemon peel and grapefruit, intertwined with honey dew, pear and melon. .  This wine is the perfect aperitif, match for shellfish or summer wine.

Terroir:                  Grapes from this wine come from the Big Valley vineyard on the Kelseyville Bench in Lake County, on the southwestern edge of Clear Lake.  The rich, volcanic soil adds to the acidity of this wine and warm valley floor days, cooled by breezes off the Lake, provide ideal growing conditions for brilliant fruit.
