Atalon Sauvignon Blanc 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
A pretty and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc that calls for warm summer days and oysters or ceviche! Brilliant pale-straw color. Aromatics of lemon, goose berry and lychee nut are held together by a backbone of minerality. Crisp, clean, bright flavors of citrus, grass, goose berry and mineral. It is a lively wine that will keep you coming back for more!
Dry and crisp with acidity, this Sauvignon Blanc, with 3% Sémillon, was fermented in stainless steel but partially aged in neutral oak barrels. The palate shows complex flavors of citrus fruits, Asian pears, lychee, cashews, vanilla, minerals and white pepper, with a touch of honey. The grapes come from all around the valley, including the cooler Oak Knoll district…
