2015 Angeline Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc

 

angeline-sonoma-county-sauvignon-blancAlthough Sonoma County appears as just a small puzzle piece in the northern reaches of the state, its unique geography, from its coastal mountain ranges and gaps, to its inland valleys makes for an incredibly diverse and dynamic growing region. Rooted in the Russian River Valley, but with sources as far north as the warm, sunny slopes of the Dry Creek Valley, this Sauvignon Blanc pays due homage to its unique home.

From the Wine Maker – “With graceful aromas of white peach and nectarine, crisp green apple, and tart lemon, this wine is balanced by a subtle minerality, and fresh green notes. An easy drinker with a crisp, clean palate, and a lingering ripened fruit finish.”

This vintage is best served with salmon, tomato, green bean and potato salad.

2014 Stags Leap Napa Valley Chardonnay

The fruit is hand-picked and whole cluster pressed. In order to preserve the minerality, fresh acidity and clean fruit characteristics, this vintage did not undergo malolactic fermentation. A portion of the wine (25%) has been fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of the fruit while adding layers of taste and complexity. The wine was aged on the lees in French oak (25% new) for six months, and stirred weekly during maturation.

From the winemaker – “Aromas of lemon zest, tart white peach and crisp pear show generously in this refreshing cool-climate Chardonnay. On the palate, vibrant citrus fruit intensity is balanced by a wet stone core and nutty undertones. Focused, yet generous in style, the wine has notable acidity that maintains freshness and lasting lemon minerality that adds complexity.”

This wine pairs nicely with rich seafood dishes, roast chicken or pasta with cream sauce.

2012 Angeline Sauvignon Blanc

Angeline-Sauvignon-BlancThe Vineyards: Our Angeline Sauvignon Blanc is produced from three excellent Russian River Valley vineyards—55% from Bob Dempel Vineyards, 25% Mirabel Vineyards and 20% Bertoli Vineyards.

This region is also blessed with long, steady growing seasons, which produce grapes with balanced ripeness and acidity. This ultimately results in wines with intense aromas and flavors.

From the winemaker – “Enticing aromas of exotic spices and fresh picked limes. Green apple and freshly cut hay are all wrapped up in a juicy, zesty mouthfeel. Sassy!

2010 Liberty School Chardonnay

The majority of Liberty School Chardonnay comes from one of the best stretches of Chardonnay country on the Central Coast—two growers in the cool-climate Santa Lucia Highlands, located on the west side of the Salinas Valley in Monterey County. Some of the most acclaimed Chardonnays in California come from that area, and Liberty School’s grapes get, as they should, first-class treatment all the way. The Chardonnay matures in a 50/50 mix of French and American oak, 10% of it new, for seven to nine months. The final blend is put together and bottled in August, just before the next harvest. The result is a wine full of fruit, full of youth, and unmistakably Chardonnay.

From the winemaker – “2010 Liberty School Chardonnay has a brilliant pale-lemon color and delicate scents of assorted citrus fruit and freshly sliced Granny Smith apples. A zesty acidity seamlessly coalesces with the wine’s refreshingly sumptuous flavors of lime, apples, butterscotch and pie crust. Excellent structure and balance lead to a long and clean finish.”

Liberty School Chardonnay is an excellent companion to a wide variety of food and preparation techniques including grilled poultry, roasted pork, sweet or spicy fruit chutney, and soft-ripening cheeses.

From the winemaker – Nice green apple, pear and honeysuckle aromas, on the palate the wine is very well balance with wonderful acidity and texture.

This non-malolactic fermented chardonnay delivers a fabulous mouthful of flavors with a long finish.”

Excellent value, this Idaho Riesling starts freshly sweet, with flavors of crisp green apple and pear, finishing with a clean, lively acidity that leaves you wanting more.
