2017 Foley Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County
Our 2017 Sauvignon Blanc displays fragrant tropical fruit aromas of guava, pineapple, lime and citrus zest. The aromas carry through to the palate with flavors of rich fruit followed by a crisp acidity that continues to define our bright and refreshing style of Sauvignon Blanc.

100% Sauvignon Blanc
2017 was another warm year with one of our earliest harvests to date. Yields were lower than the past few growing seasons, but the quality of fruit was exceptional with concentrated flavors and balanced acidity due to consistently warm temperatures throughout the season. The grapes were harvested on September 6, 2017 at optimum ripeness.
The vineyards for our Sauvignon Blanc lie in the heart of the Chalk Hill AVA. Just down the road from Foley Sonoma, our family vineyards are planted to rich soils that support the Sauvignon Musque clone used in this wine. After harvest, the majority of the fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks to capture its light, fresh characteristics and the balance in neutral French oak. The wine was bottled on March 16, 2018.
