Sauvignon Blanc, Bonterra
The inaugural release of Bonterra's Sauvignon marries fruit from Lake and Mendocino Counties, picked at a variety of ripeness levels to capture both the green fruit and riper fruit notes from each specific site. You will find intense aromas of grapefruit, kiwi and freshly cut grass captured in the glass. The oft-found muskiness of Sauvignon Blanc is offset by the concentrated tropical aromas and bright minerality in the wine. There's no mistaking the New World style - and as you drink, an integrated, almost boastful acidity gives the wine a fresh, vibrant feel. Guava and melon linger on the palate.
