This Sauvignon Blanc was produced primarily from grapes cultivated in California`s cool north and central coast regions, with the balance harvested from warmer Sierra foothill and Sacramento Delta districts.
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.
An extremely versatile food wine, it pairs beautifully with shellfish, broiled or pan-fried trout, snapper, sole, herb-roasted chicken, Caesar salad, mild cheeses, ethnic, and vegetarian fare.
