Exclusive Selection

Sauvignon Blanc
SKU: RFSB223SH

Vivacous lighter more refreshing wines may be sparkling, white or rosé, and also may be sweet or dry. However, all are on the brighter and tangier end of the flavor spectrum and will never feature oaky flavors.

FOOD PAIRING: Flattering with almost EVERYTHING, but best for RAW & COLD FOODS, LOW-FAT FOODS & SPICY FOODS.

Description

Our Curated Collection wines are small-lot selections chosen by Jean-Charles Boisset exclusively for the Boisset Collection Ambassadors. Available for a limited time, each wine is crafted by our winemakers to deliver the highest quality for the price. Curated Collection selections are not sold in tasting rooms or in stores, and are only available through your Boisset Collection Ambassador.

The Exclusive Selection Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the finest vineyards throughout California, with each area adding a unique layer into the overall taste profile. Minimally intrusive winemaking techniques allow the true California terroir to shine through in every glass poured and bottle enjoyed.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

The wine exhibits a gentle, golden hue within the glass, accompanied by fragrant lemon aromas and delicate undertones of apricot and white peach.

Palate: 

The palate showcases a harmonious equilibrium, introducing crisp citrus fruits upon entry and culminating in intricate layers of stone fruits and green apple notes. Impressively well-proportioned, the wine boasts a mineral essence, seamlessly integrated acidity, and a vibrant, lively finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2022 growing season resulted in excellent quality fruit. After years of drought, substantial winter rain was followed by dry conditions through March. Spring brought mild and cooler temperatures with bud break beginning in March. September saw a week of triple digit heat days accelerating harvest for a number of varieties. White wines from 2022 have perfect acidity, freshness and have remarkable flavor and texture.
