Drink: 2007 Brander, Sauvignon Blanc, Au Naturel

19Sep10

 

Nose: limestone, lemon zest, and white peach, with subtle hints of vanilla custard

Palate: soft, minerally, and fresh; perfect pairing with a salty crudo.   

Notes: region- Santa Ynez, California; varietal- 100% Sauvignon Blanc; the grapes are given 24 hours skin contact before being moved into stainless steel tanks for aging, which gives the finished wine a little extra texture.  Drinks beautifully now but also built to improve in the cellar.  Available at Brander Vineyard Wines.
