2016 Lee's Sauvignon Blanc
Lee's Sauvignon Blanc opens with lovely perfumed aromas encompassing tropical fruits; passion fruit and guava as well as a lovely white floral aspect, giving the wine depth and a lovely opening. Digging deeper the minerality characteristics begin to reveal themselves on the palate.
This vineyard sits on the border of the Dry Creek and is surrounded by trees. The valley floor and summer warmth provide perfect ripening conditions for Sauvignon Blanc. Planted to Sauvignon Blanc Clone 1 and intermixed with Musque clone, this vineyard is known for its exceptional mineral characteristics, wrapped in lovely floral and tropical fruit notes.
The Rogers family vineyard was harvested on the 29th of August and was pressed the same day to neutral french oak barrels. The primary fermentation was in the barrels and lasted 12 days. ML fermentation was stopped and the wine was further aged in neutral french oak barrels. The barrels were stirred and the wine was bottled unfined, but filtered.
Food Pairing Notes
Crab cakes and Oysters in the half shell.

It is the first real hot day here in Atlanta, so we decided to chill our bottle of Lee's Sauvignon Blanc. We are sitting on our screened in porch enjoying this delightful bottle of wine. Very pleasant and refreshing wine, you will not be disappointed!
