Joy Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Crisp and elegant - a great Sauvignon Blanc from Dry Creek Valley.
The intense flavor of this delicious wine is captivating and you will instantly see why the French call their finest Sauvignon Blanc a "savage white!"
Perfect with soft goat cheese or brie but just as at home with Sushi, Chinese food or any chicken or fish dish.

Nice blond straw color in the glass while showing that soft herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc nose. In the mouth crisp with hints of grass and lemon and expressing its trademark acidity that is looking to pair with soft and creamy foods. The flavor however, makes this wine great to enjoy all by itself.
Only 370 cases produced.
The 2019 weather conditions were almost perfect with gradual heat building but never to excess. No rain through the growing season and a harvest day in the 80's made the whole crop uniformly ripe. This wine was made naturally, using native yeast and aged in neutral French oak barrels so it faithfully expresses the vineyard.
Some new French oak with the majority being neutral Burgundy barrels.
