2022 Cuvée Renee Sauvignon Blanc - SOLD OUT

2022 Cuvée Renee

Sauvignon Blanc

SONOMA COUNTY


ALLOCATION LIST: $28.80
RETAIL: $32.00


TASTING NOTES

Once seen as a bit of an underdog, Sauvignon Blanc has been gaining more fans every year and is now enjoying its well-deserved moment in the spotlight. Ours seems to sell out accordingly. While we bottle several distinct versions, Cuvée Renee has long been our standard bearer for this versatile grape.

Starting with some great vineyards planted to extraordinary clones, we pull out all the stops in the cellar with multiple fermentation types in wood, stainless and a bit of carbonic on the skins. Geeky stuff, and when we blend it all together… absolute magic!

Cuvée Renee is all about the exotic fruit and sublimely textural potential of SB. Vivid tropical fruit (guava, passionfruit, lychee) combine with lemongrass and pink grapefruit, all wrapped in a surprisingly layered and satisfying mouthfeel.

For all the complexity in the bottle, it remains wonderfully unpretentious. We drink Cuvée Renee all year (not just in warmer months) and it excels with just about every cuisine you pair it with or simply all by itself. Enjoy!
