Wine Profile

Tasting Notes The 2013 vintage was a superb vintage. The unusually long season, moderate temperatures without a major heat spike, and lack of rains made for one of the best vintages in recent memory. An early spring bud break allowed our vineyards to get a two-week head start on the vintage, and the lack of frost meant that yields were excellent while the longer growing season allowed for full ripeness. The wines from this vintage will be outstanding in quality, and the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc is no exception.

Winemaker Notes “This 2013 Sauvignon Blanc showcases the pleasing influences of a warmer growing season and the reliable Long Meadow Ranch house style. Careful vineyard and winery practices protected the wine’s freshness and complexity. The nose and palate offer enticing fruit (kiwi, pineapple, honeydew melon, white mulberry), floral esters, and varietally true minerality. The entry is soft and pleasing while at the same time exceedingly clean and sufficiently crisp. The progression presents late impressions of Meyer lemon zest, sea spray, and fresh-cut pippin apples. The finish lingers with persistent softness, nectar texture, and surprising apricot fruit sweetness. The wine is classically dry, perfectly ripe, and refreshing. Enjoy while young.”
Food Pairing Notes Classic pairings include crab cakes, grilled salmon, goat cheese, bruschetta, and margarita pizza
