Joy Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Our 2011 Joy is a brand new Sauvignon Blanc from J&J Vineyards in Dry Creek Valley. We took over the farming of this vineyard in 2011 and the changes are showing through in the wine.
The sheer intensity of this delicious wine is almost shocking. A great French Sauvignon Blanc is called a "savage white" and this wine lives up to the name. This is no cool climate, grassy, herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc.
This wine is crisp and elegant with fresh tropical overtones. The slight mineral structure reminds one of limestone and hints at the wine's food pairing value while the citrus, pineapple and passion-fruit notes make the wine alone a refreshing beverage.
