Product Overview

The 2016 vintage of The Paring Sauvignon Blanc is defined by powerful fruit and balanced by mouthwatering freshness. Classic lemon curd and lime zest aromas are joined by notes of grilled white peach and agave nectar. Dense and complete on the palate with a beautiful crisp pear-like texture, the wine finishes fresh with herbal complexity and hints of ripe green melon. Perfect white for the summer months.

The Paring has committed to helping those in the restaurant industry who find themselves in need and uncertain of their future. THE PARING CUT program is donating $1 for every bottle sold from 1-Apr through 30-Jun!

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
"Based on 85% Sauvignon and 15% Semillon, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc offers Loire-like notes of racy green citrus, green herbs, gooseberry, and tart grapefruit. It hits the palate with a layered, concentrated style, bright, racy acidity, and ample length. It's a terrific effort that drinks well past its humble price point." -JD, Oct/2018

90 Points - Vinous
"The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc shows the greener, grassier side of Sauvignon, but balances that with a good bit of textural richness. Drink it over the next year or two." -AG, Sep/2018
