2017 SAUVIGNON BLANC
Our Sauvignon Blanc reflects the diversity of the climates and soils in the Central Coast that range from the cool, limestone laden Templeton Gap area to the warmer, sandy, river-influenced eastern regions. We’ve combined sauvignon blanc from vineyards in these unique areas to give our JUSTIN Sauvignon Blanc a full palate of bright citrus fruit with a hint of fresh herbs balanced by a crisp, refreshing mineral structure. The result is a wine that is both a refreshing summer aperitif, as well as a perfect food pairing wine for an amazing range of cheeses, seafood or light dining options, such as appetizers or tapas.
Appearance: Very bright, pale straw with silver/green highlights.
Aroma: Lemon, ripe pink grapefruit and ripe pear with subtle white pepper and green herb accents.
Palate: Dry, medium bodied, crisp with lemon and subtle mandarin citrus notes over a pleasant herbal background on entry with savory and mineral textural notes on the mid-palate and into the refreshing finish. This is fresh, classically styled sauvignon blanc that is perfect on a hot summer day before a meal as a refreshing aperitif, with lightly seared and salted Shishito or Padrón peppers, or with freshly grilled shrimp marinated in olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice with oregano and served with a white wine, lemon and caper sauce.
