This crisp, refreshing wine comes from our estate vineyard in
the Redwood Valley. Weibel Sauvignon Blanc vineyard is
considered old; the vines range in age between 20 and 25 years
old. They are deep rooted, grafted on renown St. George
rootstock and produce beautiful fruit on the rich bench land
soils of Redwood Valley.
Weibel Family 2010 Sauvignon Blanc was cold fermented and
aged in stainless steel to highlight the vibrant fruit character
of the varietal. Light bodied, crisp and refreshing with notable
acidity, this Sauvignon Blanc lends itself to a multitude of
food pairings. Crystal clarity with a pale straw color, this
wine has aromas of Meyer lemon and kiwi, along with a hint of
cut grass. Its bright acidity makes it a perfect match for
seafood, especially shellfish, or for light summer fare.
Serve our Sauvignon Blanc with oysters on the half shell,
fresh goat cheese, delicate fish dishes and pasta primavera.
Enjoy through 2012.
