The 2017 Joel Gott California Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of mango, ripe melon, peach and passion fruit with citrus and floral notes. The wine opens with bright, tropical aromas, followed by crisp, refreshing acidity and a long, clean, balanced finish.
Fruit from both Napa Valley and the marine-influenced Monterey County AVA offer tropical aromatics, while grapes from Lake County contribute citrus notes to the wine. Lodi and Sonoma vineyards lend good concentration and flavor to the blend. Vineyards planted on the rolling plains in Santa Barbara's Happy Canyon appellation experience morning coastal fog and afternoon winds, giving the wine its tropical aromas and crisp, clean minerality. Blending fruit from varied growing regions across California creates a balanced, food-friendly wine.
Enjoy Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc over the next 3-4 years with salmon, oysters, grilled vegetables, halibut, crab, chicken, Asian cuisine, and sushi.
