Two Angels Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Overview

 

This fruit-forward wine shows great intensity as it is poured into the glass, with hints of grapefruit, pear, honeysuckle, and citrus blossoms to name a few. A little sur lies aging adds a little weight to the mid-palate without sacrificing the refreshing crispness form entry to long, lingering finish. Added flavors of honeydew melon and mineral notes are evident on the palate.

 

Wine Facts

 

Winemaker Notes
Two Angels Sauvignon Blanc once again features fruit only from the High Valley Appellation in Lake County. These High Valley vineyards boast extremely volcanic, red pumice stone terroir. At close to 2100 feet, the area is reminiscent of the Rhone’s Valley’s Crozes-Hermitage vineyards.

Serving Hints
Serve slightly chilled, a great accompaniment to fish and shellfish.

Other Notes
The label art was created by Jacob de Backer in 1591. The theme of the piece is the hilarity of inebriation and the trauma of the morning after. Excessive joy must be countered by equally excessive sorrow, with penitential atonement for pleasure (the first “Drink Responsibly” print campaign).
