This is our twelfth release of Sauvignon Blanc from Uboldi Vineyards in Kenwood, CA.
The aromatics of this Sauvignon Blanc blend a broad spectrum of lemon, lime, and green apples to passion fruit. These fruit characters are very present in the mouth, accompanying a very crisp finish with a long, round lingering finish. The acidity of this wine makes it refreshing and food friendly. Our Sauvignon Blanc is best served between 52 and 58 degrees F (an average refrigerator after two hours).
