Foppiano Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley Estate, 2017

Overview

This wine showcases a blend of both a lush tropical style and a brighter lemongrass character. This results in the perfect Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of ripe lemon zest and fresh cut grass. Kiwi lemonade, grapefruit and sweet tart passionfruit dominates the palate, while a slight effervescence and lingering finish makes this the perfect wine to enjoy on a warm summer evening.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
Sauvignon Blanc derives perceptibly pleasant aromas and flavor complexity from brief skin contact. Our grapes are machine harvested at night and early morning to ensure the fruit is cool. The lightly crushed grapes sit in ½ ton bins for 2-3 hours before being pressed into tanks for cold setting. 48 to 72 hours later, the cleanest juice is racked into tanks for a slow, cool fermentation. A small percentage of the finished wine goes to neutral oak barrels to make a nice round finish.
