Troublemaker Blend 1 Sauvignon Blanc

Troublemaker Sauvignon Blanc
California

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.
