Atalon Sauvignon Blanc 2012


SKU 32391


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!

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…

Wine AdvocateAll of these offerings are multi-appellation blends that sell at realistic prices. The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc offers crisp grapefruit and fig notes, fresh, light to medium-bodied flavors and a straightforward finish.
