Truchard Vineyards 'The Shepherd' Sauvignon Blanc
Truchard Vineyards is the founding winery of Napa's cool-climate Carneros region, and while many of their grapes make their way into some of the region's most prestigious wines, they still manage to keep the best for themselves and put out great values under their own label. Their 'Shepherd' Sauvignon Blanc is a medium-bodied style that shows off grapefruit, gooseberry, and passionfruit aromas leading into complex flavors of guava, lime, kiwi, and lemon on the palate. It spent 3 months on the lees, which gives it a richness and texture rarely seen in Sauvignon Blanc. Bright acidity leads into a long, mineral finish.
