Food Pairing Notes
The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is a food friendly wine that pairs well with crab cakes, fresh oysters, grilled sole with lemon, and herb-roasted chicken breast.
The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc offers pronounced aromas of pear, pineapple and lemon zest with fresh mineral tones. A clean, quenching texture delivers punchy flavors of melon, peach, guava and grapefruit. A subtle hint of varietal grassiness adds complexity to a bright, zesty finish.
The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc comes predominantly from Block 41, one of the coolest locations
at Margarita Vineyard. Block 41 occupies rocky alluvial soils that vary in density, elevation and exposure. As the block slopes downward from its crown, the soils become thicker, and the temperaturesbecomecooler.Thesevariancescreatedifferentfruitexpressionsandcomplexities in our cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc fruit.
