The Crusher Sauvignon Blanc offers highly perfumed aromas of tropical pineapple, peach, and kiwi fruit as well as floral notes alongside hints of freshly cut grass. The wine offers layers of juicy flavors on the palate with crisp apple, lemon meringue tart, and classic lemon zest essence. This wine hosts a beautiful creamy texture while preserving the bright acidity and zesty character typically found in California Sauvignon Blanc.
With its moderate climate, and diverse terroir, California offers many distinct AVAs. Known for its abundant sunshine which helps to ensure a reliable extended growing season, the “Golden State” has become an American winemaking mecca on par with the other great wine regions of the world. California boasts nearly 100 American Viticulture Areas (AVAs), that encompass over half million acres of vineyards, supporting a diverse varietal mix. For our 2019 Crusher Sauvignon Blanc, the majority of the blend comes from the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. In addition, fruit from Clarksburg, California also rounds out the blend. Sauvignon Blanc likes warm weather and both of these regions oblige along with cool evenings makes these areas distinct and near perfect growing regions.
California enjoyed decent winter rainfall that helped eased ongoing drought effects and kicked off the 2019 growing season with well-watered soils. The long, warm summer saw few extreme heat events setting the stage for producing vibrant and expressive wines. The long and relatively mild finish to the season helped to preserve freshness and finesse in the fruit with extended hangtime producing great color, flavor, structure, and tannin.
