2019 Banshee Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County
This 2019 Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fragrant nose of tropical fruits, pineapple and dried guava. Flavors of zesty lime, rich lemon curd and a wonderful minerality lead to a luscious, round mid-palate. A beautifully balanced and acid driven wine with citrus zest and a hint of sea salt that surprises at every sip.
The 2019 growing season started cooler than average. As the growing season developed, the temperatures stayed moderate, causing a longer growing season. Despite a longer than normal bloom period, there was great set on the Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc. With moderate summer temperatures and few heat spikes, the growing season was long and perfect for the grapes. The cooler temperatures in the mornings and evenings allowed the fruit to maintain its acidity and develop intense, concentrated flavors . 2019 was a great growing season, with great yields, flavors and structure.
