Notes White platinum in hue, with vibrant aromatics of lemon zest, grapefruit and white jasmine, our Sonoma County sauvignon blanc evokes the scents of springtime. This energetic nose is followed by a palate lush with juicy peach, fresh pomelo, and deftly balanced by wet stone-like minerality. Crisp, crunchy acidity enlivens the lengthy finish, leaving the palate feeling pure and refreshed.
