Honig Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Honig Sauvignon Blanc 750ML 2014       
Sku: 352634

The fruit for this wine comes from our sustainably farmed vineyard in Rutherford, as well as other nearby vineyards

Tasting notes
Bright acidity lends a crisp freshness to the flavors of peach, passionfruit, and lemongrass, artfully balanced by a touch of freshly squeezed grapefruit and lime. Juicy and refreshing, with aromas of jasmine, peach, and grapefruit rind. Medium-bodied, with a lingering finish.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 89 points (Nov 30 2015)
An appealing touch of coconut water adds some richness to the peach, melon and citrus flavors, with accents of floral, citrus zest and mango. Drink now. 44,200 cases made. -MW

Wine maker notes
The Sauvignon blanc grapes are treated using two different methods. To enhance the delicate tropical fruit flavors, a portion of the fruit goes directly into the press as whole clusters. The remaining fruit is de-stemmed and left in contact with the skins for several hours before pressing, amplifying the grapefruit/citrus components. All of the juice is fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks using a variety of yeast strains selected to bring out the aroma and flavor profiles of Sauvignon Blanc.

Technical notes
FRUIT 95.2% Sauvignon Blanc, 3.9% Semillon, 0.9% Muscat HARVEST Harvest Dates: August 8 - September 9, 2014 Average Degrees Brix: 23.9 AGING Aged on light lees 10% in neutral oak tanks (the oak tanks help develop mid-palate texture without adding any oak flavor) 90% in stainless steel tanks

Food pairing
The acidity in Sauvignon blanc makes it one of the world’s best food wines. Some classic pairings include rosemary roasted chicken, mussels and salmon. Delicious with oysters, spicy Asian food and garlic.
