2018 / White
2018 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: Clear, bright, pale straw with silver highlights.
Aroma: Aromatic with ripe lemon, pear and a tropical fruit, mixed with savory herbal notes and acacia flower accents.
Palate: Dry with moderate-plus body, a fresh burst of lemon lime and green apple on the entry becoming more complex toward the mid-palate with white pepper, green herbs and floral notes as the palate unfolds. The finish is crisp with sustained citrus and tropical fruit balanced by savory fresh cut herbs, a subtle white pepper accent and a pleasing mineral texture.
It’s a perfect match to a cool summer soup like Gazpacho, or its Andalusian relative, Salmorejo made with fresh olive oil. It’s also great with grilled oysters with an herb compound butter, or a salad of mixed greens, pears and walnuts with fresh goat cheese. This is Sauvignon Blanc at its best; palate-cleansing and refreshing, textural, with a balance of complex fruit, herbal highlights and savory flavors.
