2020 Fig Tree Sauvignon Blanc
All the elements of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc converge at Fig Tree Vineyard. The site is located at the confluence of two waterways, Wine Creek and Dry Creek. The wine's mineral freshness comes from the alluvial, rocky soils that have been scoured over millennia. The rare Musqué clone adds complexity and aromatic lift. Simply put, the right grape + the right place = Fig Tree Sauvignon Blanc.
The wine is day bright, pale yellow in color with a significant green tinge. The nose is stuffed with Asian Pear, Grapefruit, Granny Smith Apple and fresh cut grass. Additional mineral notes of river rock with white flower that speaks of hibiscus. In the mouth comes brilliant acidity which hold up the flavors we find on the nose with the addition of orange flower water and very ripe fig on the persistent finish.
