Fresh, bright and crisp, this Sauvignon Blanc is a wine of balance, richness and aromatic complexity. Leading with zesty citrus notes of grapefruit, Meyer lemon and a light grassiness, this wine gives way to more tropical fruit and melon characteristics. This classic Sonoma County style Sauvignon Blanc ends with clean, refreshing acidity and pairs beautifully with toasted brie, seared scallops, oysters with mignonette and fresh pasta with sweet peas and a lemon cream sauce.
Since 1959, our passion has been to craft best in class wines in our sustainable winery to share with friends and family. Our Charlottes Home Sauvignon Blanc is grown in vineyards where well-drained mineral rich soils join with sun drenched days and cool evenings. This ideal setting allows for a light, crisp and highly authentic Sonoma County style Sauvignon Blanc, one that radiates bright citrus, peach and exotic tropical flavors.
The 2019 vintage started o with copious amounts of rain saturating the soil in late winter,
with even more rain lasting through spring. A hot June facilitated vine growth followed by
a considerable heat spike in August, pushing the sugars up and allowing the berries to
develop ripe avors. With everything in balance for a beautiful harvest, harvest began September 5 and finished by October 5.
