Quivira Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2021
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
Pale yellow in color and bright with a slight green tinge. The nose has forward tangerine and honeydew melon with high toned green notes of fresh cut grass and a salinity reminiscent of kelp on a Northern California beach in the winter. The mouth starts with round melon and clementine but changes through the middle to brighter tart tangerine with river rock minerality that is held together with a touch of bitter herbs.
Fragrant, with jasmine and lemon blossom aromatics that mingle with the core of candied ginger, pineapple and citrus flavors, followed by juicy lemon curd notes that linger on the finish. Drink now. 5,239 cases made.
Flinty and crisp, this inviting, medium-bodied wine shows lots of mineral, white pepper, chalk and cucumber flavors while great acidity keeps it lively in texture. It's practically a mignonette in itself, so raw oysters will pair beautifully.
