LONG MEADOW RANCH 'RUTHERFORD' SAUVIGNON BLANC, CALIFORNIA 2019
Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Rutherford, Napa Valley, California
What's So Special: Owned by Ted, Laddie, and Christopher Hall, LMR employs an integrated, organic farming system, using simple, sustainable methods. Each part of the Ranch contributes to the health of the whole. Vineyards and wine making, olive orchards and olive oil making, cattle and horse breeding all work together in complementary fashion, as do the egg-laying poultry flock and the organic vegetable gardens. All crops are certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and are grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers.
Tastes Like: Crisp, clean and elegant, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is rich with aromas of grapefruit, lime, kiwi, green melon and just a hint of fresh cut green grass. Our slow and very cold fermentations retain the natural complexities of our Rutherford fruit, while developing a balanced mouthfeel that finishes with the crisp acid of this classic dry white varietal.”
Pairs With: Serve with duck breast, grilled salmon, or a summer salad with melon.
What the Pros Say: Wine Enthusiast - 92 Points: "Textured and grippy, this light-bodied, high-acid white is refreshing and complex, with layers of Meyer lemon, grapefruit rind and tangerine. It rides the palate with a seamless energy of lasting freshness and subtle herbaceousness that appeals."
