2008 Wild Iris Sauvignon Blanc

Sold Out, Sorry

VINEYARD & WINERY NOTES

Our 2007 Wild Iris sold out quickly. Now the muse is back, more spirited & beautiful than ever. A fresh varietal character shines through in this 2008 SB, with a pretty straw color, aromas dominated by citrus & lime blossom & a hint of spearmint leaf. The taste is crisp & fresh with great minerality due to'08's cool growing season. 2008 Wild Iris will pair perfectly with oysters, seafood appetizers & moderately spicy paella. Yet, being sophisticated & beautiful, it is just as satisfying on its own.
Now-2011.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Blessed by a cool & moderate growing season in Napa Valley, Sauvignon Blanc was a highlight of the 2008 vintage. The grapevines provided good shading for the clusters, protecting the fruit from excess sun exposure and sunburn. Consequently, the fruit reached perfect ripness without any damage to its delicate skin.

In the winery this 100% Sauvignon Blanc was stainless steel fermented to retain its varietal character while allowing a beautiful richness to develop. The result is a very fresh SB with a lucious mouth feel.
