Foppiano Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley Estate, 2019

Overview

This wine showcases the perfect blend of tropical-grassy flavors and aromas. Two styles not often found in the same wine. Deliciously, mango and citrus mingle in this chrisp but fruit-forward Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh notes of honeysuckle, passion fruit, and orange sorbet lead to a soft lush finish of apricot and Arctic peach. Enjoy lightly chilled. 

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
Located just south of Healdsburg, Foppiano Vineyards sits on 160 acres in the acclaimed Russian River Valley. The Foppiano family has been producing world class fruit on this land since its purchase in 1896. Sauvignon Blanc derives perceptively pleasant aromas and flavor complexity from brief skin contact. The grapes are machine-harvested at night and early morning, to ensure that the fruit is cool. The fruit was harvested on September 12, 2018 (100% stainless steel fermentation). The lightly-crushed grapes sit in half-ton bins for 2-3 hours before being pressed into tanks for cold settling. 48 to 72 hours later, the cleanest juice is racked into tanks for a slow, cool fermentation. Post fermentation, a small percentage of the finished wine goes to neutral oak barrels to enhance the mouth-feel and finish.

Serve slightly chilled and enjoy on its own or pair with any seafood dish, salads, chicken or pork and assorted cheeses.
