Benziger Family Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2010 750ml

Benziger Family Winery Sauvignon Blanc

Beautiful citrus and apple flavors introduce our Sauvignon Blanc, followed close behind its delicious minerality. The winea s acid is both balanced and integrated, giving it a textured mid-palate and an elegant softness.

At Benziger Family Winery, we are dedicated to winemaking that reveals the true character of the vineyard, the varietal and the vintage in certified-sustainable, organically grown and-Biodynamic® wines defined by individuality and the passion of the people who make them. This wine was made with grapes grown by certified sustainable farming methods. Our sustainable philosophy promotes natural vineyard management, restoration of the land and biodiversity on the estate. We believe these practices result in wines that reflect the authentic flavors, aromas and character of the vineyard.

In 2010 we experienced one of the coolest summers in 50 years and fought mildew all season. The heat spikes that hit us in August and October wiped out as much as 20% of the harvest. Six inches plus of rain in the third week of October put an end to it all—leaving fruit hanging. All that said, and even a little bit bewildering, the grapes that made it through the gauntlet tasted excellent and made some excellent wines. They had beautiful flavors, velvety textures and contours. Sugars were lower than normal, which means less alcohol.

We especially liked it with Spanish manchego.
