Ironstone Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Overview

This Sauvignon Blanc has zesty citrus and green apple aromas that are followed by a sweet passion fruit and white peach middle. The finish has a touch of tartness and is crisp, full and very pleasant.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
Our Sauvignon Blanc is grown in the Mokelumne River sub-AVA of Lodi. Located in the sourth-west portion of Lodi, this micro climate is benefitted by the cool breezes of the Pacific Ocean via the Delta water system and the Mokelumne River. At Ironstone, we use crop reduction, leaf removal, organic materials, and drip irrigation to improve the quality and intensity of flavors. Cover crops, which attract beneficial insects, are also employed. In addition, we place owl and wood duck boxes around the vineyards and ponds helping to preserve the surrounding habitats.


Serving Hints

Delicious as an aperitif or serve chilled with chicken, pork or turkey. Fish such as salmon, snapper or sea bass are also perfect accompaniments as is lobster, crab or clams. Pasta dishes like a white lasagna or white bean casserole go very nicely with this wine too.
