2020 Foley Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County
The winter of 2019-2020 produced average rainfall throughout most of Northern California, with the bulk of precipitation occurring January through May. Spring temperatures were mild and warm with bud break about two weeks earlier than average in Sonoma County. Temperatures during the summer were above average which led to early grape ripening and an early harvest.
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
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 in May 2021.
