Hess Select North Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2019 750ML
Our North Coast Sauvignon Blanc is a zesty expression, fermented in stainless without oak to show off fruit flavors led by citrusy lime and lemon, followed closely by hints of tropical aromas and flavors.
CALIFORNIA’S NORTH COAST
Rugged, often wild, with never-ending complexity, this unique growing region has long been home to advocates for familyfocused sustainable viticulture. A relatively mild Mediterranean climate with predictable heating and cooling cycles is overlaid on a mélange of well-drained volcanic and gravelly soils perfect for concentrating vine energy. Rolling hillsides and benchlands offer prime vineyard sites producing flavorful fruit with layers of agreeable acids and balanced tannins.
TASTE WITH THE WINEMAKER
“This wine is a classic expression of Sauvignon Blanc fermented in stainless steel without oak to show off the naturally bright, refreshing citrus fruit flavors. On the nose, it is led by fresh melon and grapefruit with a subtle presence of lychee. The wine is beautifully structured with flavors of yellow stone fruit complemented by elements of succulent peach and apricot, all of which are balanced by a perfect acidity and lemon zest on the bright, enjoyable finish. Our Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and truly easy to enjoy, and you won’t be surprised to find me relaxing with a glass at the end of the day.”
