Sauvignon Blanc

2006 Sauvignon Blanc Hummingbird Hill Vineyards
Sonoma Coast

This is an ideal aperitif wine, balanced and complex, with fig, pear and tropical fruit flavors. Our 2006 Sauvignon Blanc will complement a myriad of food pairings including grilled fish and fresh seafood, particularly oysters, crab, and lobster, grilled chicken dishes and a wide range of cheeses. The inspiration for this wine comes in part from our admiration for New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. The high acidity and low pH of these wines have found their way to Hummingbird Hill Vineyards and marry nicely with the lush fruit profile that is frequently found in Sauvignon Blancs from the Russian River. Our Sauvignon Blanc offers characteristics often found in one or the other but seldom in both. With that idea in mind, we present: “New Zealand meets Russian River on the Sonoma Coast.”

Rating: 99
The label is elegant. Pear, quince, lemon zest on the nose & no grassiness! Flavors are yummy with great acidity. Enjoyed this with grilled shrimp with white chocolate sauce. Wow!
