Purchase 2007 Neal Family Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc

Neal Family Vineyards introduces its first Sauvignon Blanc with the 2007 vintage. Organically grown fruit from the lower slopes of Howell Mountain have provided a delicious combination of classic Sauvignon Blanc fruit characters as well as hint of very ripe tropical flavors.

This is a wine we made to capture the true essence of the grapes grown on a small hillside near Pope Valley. It was whole cluster pressed with some skin contact in the press. The wine was in stainless steel throughout a long, very cold fermentation and short amount of sur lie aging. We avoided any time in barrel in hopes of creating a bright, crisp, flavorful Sauvignon Blanc that is a delightful food wine. To maximize the aromatic and flavor profiles, let this warm up slightly after removing from refrigeration before it is served.

Intense aromas include pure Sauvignon Blanc fruit, floral blossoms and pineapple-guava characters. First impressions in the mouth are of citrus: grapefruit and Meyer lemon-Kaffir lime. After the initial impact of a bright and lively mouthfeel, more of the tropical flavors appear, including passion fruit and pineapple. The finish has a slight creamy texture, creating a great long finish and pleasant aftertaste.
