KENWOOD VINEYARDS 2010 SONOMA COUNTY SAUVIGNON BLANC
Appetizing notes of lemongrass, guava and passion fruit combine with a fresh and crisp mouthfeel and a tangy finish.
For more than 30 years, our Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc has been one of our most popular and highly regarded wines. The fruit sourced for this Sauvignon Blanc comes from vineyards located in five different appellations in Sonoma County. The cooler regions of Carneros and the Russian River Valley bring grassy characteristics to the wine, while grapes from the warmer Dry Creek, Sonoma Valley and Alexander Valley regions impart melon and tropical fruit flavors. The result can be found in this well-balanced, award-winning wine.
After a long cool growing season the grapes were picked in September of 2010. The individual vineyard lots were harvested at their peak of flavor and then fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. After aging, our winemaking team selected individual lots which form a harmonious and complex blend. The wine was produced without any barrel ageing or malolactic fermentation so the distinctive varietal character of Sauvignon Blanc would carry through the bottle.
Served slightly chilled, this Sauvignon Blanc makes an excellent aperitif and complements a number of dishes. Excellent with lightly-sauced poultry, shellfish and seafood dishes, as well as spicy Asian cuisine.
