Two Angels Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Overview

 

In the glass this wine shows brilliant light straw colors with a hint of green hues. This fruit forward wine shows beautiful intensity and complexity of aromas that includes hints of Meyer lemon, stone fruit, Golden delicious apple, and slight fresh green grass. On the palate there are added notes of lychee nut and a nutty, rich brown butter richness, to compliment the crisp freshness and a wonderful clean finish.

 

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes

Similar to the past handful of vintages, the grapes come from the acclaimed High Valley Appellation in Lake County from a vineyard located around 2000 feet elevation. With its sloped (20-30 degrees), well drained hillside soils, and slightly cooler daytime temperatures we are able to generate wonderful fruit characteristics in this Sauvignon Blanc.


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

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).
