2017 Cuvée Renee Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc

SONOMA COUNTY

Tasting Notes

We’ve made it a mission to shatter expectations of this often-underappreciated grape. In fact, claiming that you “don’t like Sauvignon Blanc” at one of our tastings is a guarantee to get it poured in your glass, pronto. Judging by its popularity however, we’re spreading the word and have won over more than a few new fans.

Luscious, juicy and absent of grassy or “pipi de chat” aromas, Cuvée Renee is a far more complex wine than most would expect. Flavors center around grapefruit, lemon-lime, guava, Asian pear, and peach. The finish is long and refreshing, combining a fresh snap of acidity with an unexpected and satisfyingly round texture.

For the 2017, we tweaked the winemaking by not only adding a small amount of barrel aged wine from the previous vintage but also a few barrels of extended skin contact juice adding even more flesh and perfume to the final blend.

Utterly joyful, this is summer in a glass (and Kent’s favorite vintage yet) that’s equally at home poolside or on the dinner table.
