2010 Kalinda Lake County Sauvignon Blanc

SKU #1093280

This Lake County Sauvignon Blanc production under own own Kalinda label is a lively and refreshing fruity white, perfect for poolside sipping! 7% Riesling adds a delightful floral touch. It was produced by the talented team behind the "Girls in the Vineyard" wines, from the region of Lake County, the up-and-coming California AVA for great values, located just north of Napa. As a private label, you get a lot more in the bottle for what you pay for! This is perfumed and elegant, with lots of minerality and notes of lime blossom. While some Cali SB's can be overly grassy or intensely citric, this unoaked, fruit-driven style is beautifully balanced and completely irresistable.

Produced for us by the Women in the Vineyards, this refreshing, bright Sauvignon Blanc (which has 6% Riesling in it) is clean, crisp, and mouthwatering on the palate and in the finish. There is a wet river stone mineral note in its presentation, but it provides lovely lime-zest to dandeleon qualities on the nose and in its fresh finish. This Gem will also be one of our house whites for the month, according to The Bean. 13.5% ABV
Drink from 2012 to 2015

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Sauvignon Blanc

- One of the best known "international" varieties originally cultivated in France and considered the parent of, with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon. Sauvignon's wonderfully distinctive aromatics generate some of wine's most colorful descriptors, among them "cat pee," herbaceous, grassy, citrusy the world over. In France, the apex of Sauvignon Blanc production is the Loire Valley, in the appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, where the terroir expresses itself most beautifully through the grape. Sauvignon Blanc is also the leading white grape varietal in Bordeaux, where it is paired with the fatter, richer Sémillon to varying degrees. Relatively easy to cultivate, though more suited to cool climates, Sauvignon Blanc has made inroads in Europe outside of France, especially in Northeastern Italy's Friuli and Alto Adige, but also on the Slovenian border. These lovely wines are often overshadowed by Sauvignon Blanc's achievements in the New World, namely New Zealand, South Africa and California. New Zealand's Sauvignon Blancs, more conspicuously fruity than most French examples, landed the small island nation on the world wine map in the late-1980s and 1990s. South African Sauvignons are one of the most successful international varieties produced in that country and are often quite elegant and affordable. In California, Robert Mondavi managed to, almost single-handedly, created a market for Sauvignon Blanc by renaming his oak-fermented version Fumé Blanc. While some wineries still use the name, California Sauvignon Blanc has secured its place in the California wine pantheon, particularly those from the Napa Valley. Washington State, Chile and Argentina also have considerable plantings of the grape.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
