2017 Roth Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley
Our 2017 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a sophisticated and authentic expression of our estate fruit. this classic Bordeaux-style Sauvignon Blanc is blended with 14% Semillon to impart balance and texture while also highlighting the nectarine and papaya notes of our Sauvignon Blanc. its fruit-forward aromas of citrus zest and guava lead into bright and crisp flavors of nectarine, candied mango, papaya, and lime zest that balance beautifully with a crisp minerality. A long and juicy finish ties together a truly beautiful vintage of Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

Roth Estate is a family-owned winery dedicated to crafting full-flavored wines grown in exemplary Sonoma County vineyards. Beginning in 2001, Roth committed to producing classic Bordeaux varietals. A decade later the winery expanded its winemaking to include cool-climate varietals from the Sonoma Coast. This Sauvignon Blanc is 100% estate fruit from the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Ample winter rainfall provided much needed relief in the region. Consistently sunny days throughout the spring and summer with heat spikes in September resulted in an early harvest. With harvest finishing in early fall, we were unaected by the October wildfires and the fruit came in with exceptional quality.
