2016 Sauvignon Blanc

A briny sea breeze is what comes to mind on the first impression. Crisp, floral hints of hibiscus and tangerine; cool, tropical aromas of guava and mango are also present. The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is refreshing and clean and will pair fantastically with many coastal dishes from oysters on the half shell to baked halibut. Enjoy! - STC

Winemaker's Tasting Notes

Scot Covington - Winemaker

 

 

Trione 2016 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc

 

Once again Mother Nature has provided Sonoma County another vintage year for growers and winemakers. 2016 was by many measures a perfect year to grow grapes. The season started early as did the previous year. The crop was slightly larger than 2015 but near perfect quality. It was an early harvest season, beginning mid-August and finishing up by the end of September, another record year here at Trione Vineyards and Winery.

 

Cases produced:  2,650

Suggested California retail price:  $25

 

Winemaking:  The making of the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc utilized traditional methods of hand harvesting and whole bunch pressing to ensure the highest quality juice. The South African yeast Alchemy II was used for the fermentation. This new yeast strain imparts fresh gooseberry and grassiness to the wine that balances the fresh fruit components on the palate and finish. If you close your eyes and sip, you may see visions of the Loire Valley or perhaps the Marlborough region of the south island of New Zealand.
