Joy Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Crisp and elegant - a great Sauvignon Blanc from one of the coolest vineyards in 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.
No two growing years are the same and 2021 was a challenging  growing season.

Faced with the challenges of drought and high altitude smoke from the Tahoe fires we had to adapt.  With less available water, our crop and canopy management techniques were modified to balance the potential adverse effects of drought.

The high quality of our grapes remained intact and especially flavorful from fruit concentration since the vines didn’t receive excess water and the high altitude smoke allowed a longer hang time while decreasing extra sugar development albeit producing a significantly lighter crop due to our water conservation efforts.

In short, the 2021 year’s harvest brought lower crop yields, but the quality is excellent.

Some new French oak with the majority being neutral Burgundy barrels.
Joy Sauvignon Blanc is from a single vineyard which produced only 537 cases.
