Tasting Note

Pale lemon colour. The aroma allies freshness to complexity - succulent pink grapefruit and exotic passionfruit combine with ever so subtle, creamy oak and a suggestion of gunflint. In the mouth, green herbs (fennel, chervil) join the citrus and tropical character of the nose. Pleasurable contrast between fresh zestiness and creamy richness. Lovely wine!

Winemaking

ELEVEN Sauvignon Blanc was grown in the legendary Dry Creek Valley, a small AVA made of gravel and sandy loam soils characterized by warm breezes, rich alluvium, and well-drained visually stunning rocky red soils. The warm days and cool evenings mature our grapes early in the season, and the long sunny afternoons enhance development of flavors in both the citrus and tropical fruit spectrums. Primarily fermented in stainless steel to preserve the dramatic fruit attributes. A small portion is fermented in French oak barrels to create a blending component that adds dimension, and a subtle richness and depth that are rare and exciting in Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc. Vibrant aromas of guava, pineapple, and passion fruit continue onto the palate and are joined by waves of honeydew melon, tangerine, and lychee flavors. The mid-palate shows a lively acidity and soft floral notes leading to a pleasingly persistent finish.

Press

  • 94/100 - We found this masterful white to be one of the best Sauv Blancs we’ve tasted this year. By using small vineyard parcels and working with attentive viticulturists, this winery has crafted a wine that spoke to us of sunshine, rocky-red soil, and exceptional fruit.

  • 90/100 - This is a fruity white that is balanced by buoyant acidity. Fermented mostly in stainless steel, it offers defined flavors of lemon, melon and lime.
