Tasting notes: This is a medium to light-bodied Sauvignon Blanc, lovingly inspired by the Loire Valley. White peach and apricot, yellow grapefruit, and lemon blossom aromas erupt from the glass. These aromatics carry through and lend a dry fruitiness to the mineral driven pallet. The wine has very appealing ripeness and great balancing acidity, where the complexity of stone fruit and green apples, yield to a very citrusy, crisp finish.
Production notes: Elizabeth Spencer is made in a certified organic, carbon-neutral winery. The fruit was allowed to macerate for several hours in the press, allowing it extract aromatics and just the right amount of astringency from the gently broken skin. It was then fermented in stainless steel in order to showcase the exquisite varietal character. “Sur lie aging” prior to bottling enhanced the wine’s aromatics, structure, complexity, and mouth feel.
