The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a bright fruit profile of apples and melons. The mostly stainless steel fermentation provides the crisp character to the wine. Try this wine with pasta with cream sauce. -Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker The 2012 vintage was fairly typical for eastern Washington and a much welcomed change from the cooler 2010 and 2011 vintages. Bud break started a little earlier than normal but cooler temperatures through the early summer delayed veraison slightly. A warming trend began in late July and dry conditions through mid-October were ideal for fruit ripening. Perfect Pairings Try this wine with pasta with cream sauce.
