Lively and inviting, this is a great all-purpose wine. Fresh honeydew melon, grapefruit, and passion fruit aromas beg you to continue sipping, because there's more. Yes, a bit of spice to end it all, and your choice is affirmed. Very food friendly, this wine pairs beautifully with shellfish, herb-roasted chicken, Caesar salad, mild cheeses, and vegetarian fare. A Sauvignon Blanc wine like no other.
Sauvignon Blanc is growing in popularity for its crisp flavor profile and easy food-friendliness. Sutter Home`s Sauvignon Blanc has been praised by critics for its bright, fresh honeydew melon, grapefruit, and passion fruit aromas balanced by a pleasant grassiness that brings to mind the classic cool-climate examples of the varietal from New Zealand. Its rich, round flavors suggest melon, lime, and grapefruit finished with spice and minerals.
When the Trinchero family bought the Sutter Home Winery in 1948, they had a vision, a passion, and apparently, an insight into consumer tastes. In the early 1970s, Sutter Home started a trend when the company created White Zinfandel, introducing a new, sweeter flavor profile. They changed the way Americans enjoyed wine by offering them high-quality varietals at an affordable price. By the 1980s and 1990s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest independent family-run winery in the United States.
