Perfect ripeness fostered by the classic 2013 vintage gave our Rutherford Estate Sauvignon Blanc its rich fruit intensity, incredibly opulent texture and gorgeous balance. Heady plumeria blossom, mango and spiced baked apple aromas reflect both the vineyard personality and new French oak barrels. The flavors explode in vivid layers of pineapple guava and lemon custard, laced with an intriguing minerality. Aging on the yeast enhanced the silky texture and weight on the palate. Considering it one of the best Sauvignon Blanc wines that they’ve ever made, our winemaking team suggests pairing it with buttery white cheese spread on a warm baguette, prawns sautéed with citrus zest or sashimi salad.
