Lot 554 2016 Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Lot 554
2016 Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc

A small-lot Sauvignon Blanc from one of the region's pioneering producers - only 250 cases available.
Fermentation in oak gives this wine a more muscular feel, with a wide-ranging aromatic profile. Effusive and complex on the nose, with blossomy banana and grapefruit notes backed by deeper mango and meaty papaya. Zesty on the palate, but perfectly balanced between citrus and tropical fruits. Excellent length and purity on the lip-smacking finish.

Style: Light, Crisp

Flavors: Apple, Grapefruit, Melon

Cam Confidential

Lot 554 is sourced from one of the region’s pioneering producers, renowned not only for their Sauvignon Blanc but for being one of the first gravity fed wineries many decades before they became de rigeur. Grown from hillside vineyards above the Dry Creek Valley, this Musqué clone is meticulously guided through whole cluster press and fermentation by the estate’s winemaker, finishing in new French oak for a softer, subtle exit on the palate.

An exotic, medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc for your drinking pleasure - at $13, it's almost 50% off their retail price of $25. This is one of our smaller acquisitions for the year – only 250 cases are available!
