Schug Sauvignon Blanc 2022, Sonoma Coast, California

This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is grown in cool-climate vineyards at the southern end of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The Hi-Vista vineyard in western Carneros, and the Grossi vineyard north of Petaluma, contribute spice and bright, tangy acidity. The Leveroni vineyard south of Sonoma adds the unique floral character of the Sauvignon ‘musqué’ clone. This wine bursts aromas of lemon and grapefruit zest and offers subtle flavors of white peach, key lime, and honeydew melon. It finishes with a refreshing minerality and zesty acidity. 100% Sonoma Coast. Fermentation: 70% fermented in neutral oak casks, 30% fermented in stainless steel tanks. Aging/Cooperage: Aged ‘sur-lie’ for 4 months in neutral casks and stainless steel tanks.
