2014 Langtry Sauvignon Blanc, Lillie Vineyard, Guenoc Valley AVA
This 2014 showcases bright aromas of lemon, and citrus peel. Tropical fruit flavors, grapefruit and lemon zest complement grassy notes on the palate. A lively acidity is balanced with a full mouth-feel from the neutral oak fermentation, leading to a smooth, lingering finish.
Food Pairing Notes
With its bright acidity, grassy notes, and full-body, this wine pairs well with grilled asparagus that has been basted with olive oil and lemon juice or serve as guests arrive for a crisp aperitif.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
50% Barrel Fermented (4 months in Neutral Barrels), 50% Stainless Steel
The 2014 growing season was consistent and long overall with warm summer temperatures during the day that kept the acids high while still bringing the fruit to optimal maturity. Partially barrel fermented in 8-year-old neutral oak, the 2014 Langtry Lillie Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is made in our sur lie style for added texture and complexity.
Like its namesake, the Lillie Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is unique. Located west of the Langtry House, the five acre vineyard is unlike most Sauvignon Blanc plantings. Its restrictive, shallow, magnesium-laced soils produce small vines, leaves and berries, and thus, modest yields for a vigorous variety. The fruit is concentrated and very complex.
