2021 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.
Star bright in the glass with the color of pale straw, the wine exudes fruit aromas of Meyer lemon, key lime, apricot and fig leaf. These are complimented by non fruit notes of white flowers, jalapeno, gravel and freshly watered grass. In the mouth the Fig Tree explodes with tart lemon, lime and tangerine. High acidity is tempered with river rock minerality, white flowers and orange pith which changes to a fleshy, ripe tangerine on the finish.
