2018 Foley Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc, Alexander Valley
Our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc displays fragrant tropical fruit aromas of guava, pineapple, lime and citrus zest. These notes carry through to the palate of rich fruit and a crisp acidity. It all comes together to define our bright and refreshing style of Sauvignon Blanc.
Food Pairing Notes
This is a great wine to enjoy with your favorite seafood dish or as an aperitif on a warm day.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
March 14, 2019
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 14, 2019.
Coming off of a warmer 2017 vintage, 2018 was a change of pace with cooler and mostly moderate temperatures throughout the year. We were able to let the fruit hang on the vines longer so they could soak up some September-October sunshine and provide us with a bounty of concentrated fruit with beautiful character.
