Product Overview

The 2019 Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc opens with vivid tropical aromas of white flowers, ripe melon, and sweet citrus. The citrus and tropical characters extend onto the palate with ripe guava and crisp pink grapefruit, balanced by bright acidity and accented by a flinty vein of minerality. This is a zesty wine that stands up well to shrimp, crab, grilled vegetables and is perfect for a cheese plate!

88 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc was fermented 78% in tanks, 22% in neutral barrels and 0.4% in concrete eggs. It is composed of 99% Sauvignon Blanc with splashes of Verdelho and Viognier. The nose opens with pretty white peaches, fresh Golden Delicious apples and pears scents with hints of dill seed, bouquet garni and white pepper. Medium-bodied, it features a refreshing backbone supporting the vibrant apple and pear flavors, finishing with an herbal lift." -LPB, 10/31/19
