Tasting Notes: This barrel-fermented white is blended with 5% sauvignon musqué for an interesting twist on this variety. The wine has light, inviting apple blossom aromas. It demonstrates a refreshing complex arrangement of hay, honey, apple, savory fig and lemon curd. A chardonnay-lover’s sauvignon blanc.
Tasting Notes: America's first sparkling sauvignon blanc is a treat to sparkling lovers. The toastiness of Champagne but the citrusy, freshness of sauvignon blanc, you have to drink a full glass of this Sonoma wine to believe it’s real. One of the most unique wine experiences you will have this year. Sparkling wine lovers and sauvignon blanc lovers will all get a kick out of this great wine.
Tasting Notes: Light and zesty, from Central Coast, this is the newest addition to the Austin Hope collection. Not your usual sauvignon blanc, especially with the addition of riesling and just a touch of chardonnay. No malolactic fermentation helps preserve the purity of the fruit. Citrus and tropical fruit notes on the nose, with a hint of honeysuckle. Perfect sippin’ wine for the spring/summer season.
Tasting Notes: From Rutherford, Napa. An unusual offering considering the AVA’s reputation for big reds, but what a pleasant surprise. Harvesting was done over two separate time periods. Winemaker Ashley Heisey worked her magic in the blending of the two distinct lots. Great complexity for 100% stainless steel fermentation. Very concentrated fruit, bursting with fresh hints of peaches, pears and lemon grass.
Tasting Notes: Clean with a citrus heavy, passion fruit and characteristic lemon and lime notes. This Marlborough wine is a refreshingly good example of value sauvignon blanc that delivers on its promised richness and drinkability.
