Kenwood Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc'03, Sonoma County, CA, USA

A terrific Sauvignon blanc blend, perfect to sip on the patio during summer time.

Technical Data:97% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Chardonnay aged one third for 3 months in French oak. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, a small portion of the juice was aged in French oak to create richness and smoothness of character. The majority of the blend was aged in stainless steel to retain the natural fruity flavors of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The winemaker held the fruit from each vineyard lot separate throughout fermentation and aging, blending just prior to bottling for optimum flavors.

Descritpion:Pale straw yellow color.Grass and tropical fruits on the nose.Vibrant varietal flavors of grass, melon and tropical fruit on the palate. Fresh and crisp, with lively body and a long finish.

Food Pairing & Service:Best served chilled, this Sauvignon Blanc makes an excellent aperitif and will complement higher-acid dishes including salads and vegetables. Excellent with light sauced poultry, shellfish and seafood dishes.
