2017 Sauvignon Blanc (Ancient Peaks)
Ancient Peaks, Sauvignon Blanc, Paso Robles, CA 2017100% Sauvignon Blanc SWEET ORANGE BELL PEPPER, GOOSEBERRY & FIG From the oldest vines in the San Luis Obispo region, comes this clean, unoaked Sauvignon Blanc. The 35-year-old vines are now mature and naturally low-yielding, meaning the grapes are harvested with lots of flavor, but not much juice. The pure-tasting wine made from those grapes is rich and silky, with subtle complexity from the ancient soils in which the vines grow (a former sea bed, riddled with oyster fossils). A hint of salinity on the finish. Serving Suggestions: Oysters Meunier and scalloped potatoes topped with fresh chives, or oven roasted ginger chicken.
