2020 Cuvée Renee Sauvignon Blanc

2020 Cuvée Renee

Sauvignon Blanc

SONOMA COUNTY


ALLOCATION LIST: $27.90
RETAIL: $31.00


Tasting Notes

The low-key giant killer in our lineup and the wine that (especially for the uninitiated) handily explodes any preconceptions of the humble Sauvignon Blanc grape.

Largely sourced from the outstanding, longtime EK partner Dry Stack vineyard, the exotic Rauscedo clone provides a rush of sweet pink grapefruit, tropical fruit aromas and flavors (guava, passionfruit) as well as juicy white peach. We barrel ferment a small portion every year as well as back blend a touch of over-vintaged, French-oak-aged wine from the previous vintage to build a succulent mouthfeel and long, complex, and truly satisfying finish.

Far from the ocean of feline and grass-driven examples, we’re always excited to offer a more interesting and noble bottling of SB. Along with our Rosé, Cuvée Renee is a joyous harbinger of the oncoming warmer months.

It ages like a champ too, so if you end up with some extra supply down the road, don’t worry – it drinks fabulously for years!
