2019 J. Lohr Vineyard Series F&G Sauvignon Blanc Sauvignon Blanc

The 2019 F&G Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is pale yellow in color, highlighted by aromas of honeysuckle, Meyer lemon, and mineral with a hint of fig. These aromas are complemented on the palate by the bright flavors of ripe grapefruit, kiwi, and pear, with rich palate texture and a long finish provided by the French Oak and acacia barrels and puncheons.

Vineyard

The grapes for the F&G Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc are grown in the sand-laden cobblestone soil of the cool and windy Arroyo Seco AVA. These rugged soils keep yields in check and produce fruit with varietal intensity, minerality, and exceptional weight. The long cool growing season of the Arroyo Seco appellation ensures that the fleeting, exotic fruit flavors of Sauvignon Blanc are retained along with a vibrant natural acidity. The F&G Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is created to be a New World expression of pure varietal character in a classic, Old World style.

Vintage

The 2019 growing season was characterized by a very cool spring on our sustainably farmed joint venture F&G Vineyard in the Arroyo Seco. Cool mornings and evenings, with daytime highs in the 80s and the characteristic winds of the summer afternoons, provided weather close to ideal for gradual ripening of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The cool weather enhanced the grapefruit, passionfruit, and Meyer lemon flavors in the Sauvignon Musqué fruit, while the afternoon winds helped slow their maturity and increase texture. This wine is a blend of five different harvests, each capturing a unique facet of the grape to build complexity in the final blend.
