Ancient Peaks Suavignon Blanc

$18.00

The 2015 Ancient Peaks Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a vivid varietal character that is rooted in their estate Margarita Vineyard. Amid one of the Paso Robles region’s coolest growing environments, the Sauvignon Blanc grape achieves a fine balance of ripeness and raciness, with crisp acidity and appealing mineral accents. Their aim is to produce an authentic Sauvignon Blanc that reflects the cooler growing conditions at Margarita Vineyard. In 2015, they performed three separate picks at varying degrees of ripeness over a span of 11 days. The first pick created a foundation of bright acidity and grapefruit character, while the later picks contributed incremental layers of riper tropical flavors. All of the lots were cold fermented at 55 degrees over an extended period to retain delicate aromatics and pure fruit flavors. The wine was then aged for five months in stainless steel tanks at cold temperatures to further preserve textural crispness.

The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc leans into the nose with vivid varietal signatures, including notes of lime zest, grassy herb and gooseberry. The palate is crisp and clean, offering quenching flavors of grapefruit, white peach and green apple. Brisk acidity cascades into a refreshing finish.  

The pungent liveliness of the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is a fine match for crab cakes, shrimp pasta in white wine sauce, grilled asparagus, Thai chicken salad, and salmon with lemon and dill.
