2013 "Sexy Rexy" Sauvignon Blanc
Russian River Valley
We absolutely LOVE this wine! Sure we admit we’re a little biased but you don’t have to take our word for it. Take the word of the 20 person Sommelier & Winemaker judges panel of the 2013 Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge who awarded this wine a gold medal and declared it “best of the best” in the “Over $30 Sauvignon Blanc” category.
Now wait a minute you say, I thought you are only selling this wine for $25?
Why yes, you are correct.
You see when we submitted the wine into the competition we didn’t know where we would finally price it and we didn’t want to limit ourselves. So we submitted it into the “over $30 Sauvignon Blanc” category where this little David of a wine took on the Goliath’s and beat wines three times as expensive and won a GOLD medal! At $25 not only is this wine a winner but so are you!!
Not a fan of Sauvignon Blanc? Well you’re in good company because we don’t like traditional grassy, herbaceous style of Sauvignon Blanc either, so we don’t make it. Instead we source a special Italian clone of Sauvignon Blanc that delivers grapefruit & tropical fruit notes instead. Trust us, you will fall in love with this wine and you can thank us later.
On the nose elegant aromas of citrus blossoms, lemongrass and verbena, with hints of tropical fruit and melon. On the palate there is a distinct grapefruit character as well as guava and lemon-lime. The wine finishes with our trademark zesty, juicy acidity that sends you back for sip, after sip, after sip. Yummy.
Like all our wines our Sauvignon Blanc was fermented with indigenous yeast and aged on its lees in neutral oak barrels to add texture without imparting oak flavor, and like its namesake, this wine is flat-out sexy!
