Tasting Notes

As longtime superfans of this grape, we’re excited to see Sauvignon Blanc gain popularity year over year. Still, much of what you’ll find out there falls into the breezy, simple citrus-y aperetif category, which is fine. Ours, however, is a bit different. OK… very different!

Explosively perfumed and lavishly textured with exotic tropical fruit right up front: Guava, passionfruit and lychee positively gush from the glass while pink grapefuit, lime rind and lemongrass follow though on the long, creamy (yet refreshing) finish. This year’s Cuvée Renee is extra dramatically flavored and, frankly, one of our most favorite vintages ever.

Predominantly fermented and raised in stainless steel to preserve the gregarious, exotic fruit, we round out the cuvée with bit of juice barrel fermented in killer French oak, harmonizing and enhancing the mid-palate texture. This extra work helps coax Cuvée Renee to full potential and sets it apart from less ambitious peers – there’s a heck of a lot more deliciousness here!

Wonderful on its own, it’ll also stand up surprisingly well to many non-traditional wine pairings and handle the spicier, sweet-salty cuisines of South East Asain along with bold, south-of-the-US border favorites.
