Reckless Love Wines just launched this brand new Cali Sauvignon Blanc - perfect timing for your patio shenanigans! WineCollective members are the first in Canada to receive this bottle, so be sure to show it off to all your friends! Grapes harvested from several regions make this the ultimate representation of North Coast California. Clarksburg is in the Central Valley, in Yolo County, while the majority of grapes are sourced from Mendocino, Sonoma County, and Lake County in the North Coast. The North Coast Region of California is predominately home to Cabernet Sauvignon, while Sauvignon Blanc only makes up 5% of the wines produced here. North of San Francisco, the North Coast is large, with many sub-regions spanning 1.2 million hectares of land. From Napa Valley to Russian River Valley, there is a wide array of wines produced here with something for everyone! Although this label is whimsical and Instagram ready, that doesn't mean you can't take it seriously. Not all exemplary wines need to be serious, so take a sip and find out for yourself! Enjoy this year and chill to 6-8 C before serving.
Clear and clean, with a pale yellow colour and light green reflections. Sunshine in your glass!
Now this is what we have been waiting for! Like a breath of fresh air, this wine exudes notes of tropical fruit and florals. The aromas let us know that this is a warmer climate Sauv Blanc, where the fruits are ripe and juicy, with just a tad of green - like fresh cut grass. We love the pineapple, melon rind, fresh squeezed lemon, and perfumed blossoms.
The tropical train continues! In addition to pineapple, there is a bit more exotic notes of guava, partnered with white floral and a pop from zesty citrus. Easy drinking with moderate acidity and a smooth mouthfeel, the freshness carries across our palate with an emphasis of fruity ripeness near the finish. Crisp and refreshing, balancing a mouthwatering acidity with juicy fruits.
We would be doing you a disservice if we didn't pair this wine with a baller brunch menu. Afterall, it is Sunday Funday! Indulge in some sweetness and serve crêpes with a fresh fruit salad, or lean towards savoury and prepare a quiche partnered with grilled asparagus.
