' Quintessential - Samuel Charles Sauvignon Blanc

Samuel Charles Sauvignon Blanc 2023


This wine immediately impresses with aromas that display good intensity and lemon and green apple notes with hints of honeysuckle, passion fruit and anise, along with a touch of herbs and minerality. The flavors follow with a rich suppleness to balance the refreshingly crisp mouth-feel that leads to an enjoyable and lingering finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
This fifth vintage of Samuel Charles Sauvignon Blanc comes from the High Valley AVA in Lake County, CA. This vineyard is located at nearly 2,000 feet elevation, some of the highest and best Sauvignon Blanc vineyards in the state. With its sloped (20-30 degree), well-drained hillside soils, and slightly cooler daytime temperatures, wonderful fruit characteristics leap from the wine. It is fermented and aged exclusively in stainless steel to preserve these fresh fruit characteristics, and partially aged sur lies for added richness on the palate.

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