Honig Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc

Napa Valley, California

13.5 Alcohol

Introduction

Louis Honig purchased a 68-acre ranch in Rutherford, which is in the heart of the Napa Valley. Early on he sold off his grapes to local wineries but Louis dreamed of the day he could retire from his San Francisco advertising agency job and make wine at his vineyard. Sadly, he didn’t realize that dream, as he passed away before that could happen. He willed the estate to his family, and in 1980, as a tribute to his legacy, his family produced a few hundred cases of Louis Honig Sauvignon Blanc in the vineyard’s old tractor barn. After the wine won a Gold Medal at the Orange County Fair, the family decided to increase production, and Honig Vineyard & Winery was officially born. Louis’ grandson, Michael took over the winery, at the tender age of 22. What began as a small “garage” winery is now a thriving family endeavour. The winery is solar powered and the winemakers even use Golden Retriever ‘sniffer dogs’ to guard against the threat of mealybugs. A happy outcome of their sustainable farming is a plentiful amount of bees. They even make their own honey at the winery! Enjoy this wine chilled at 8 C, from now until 2023.


How it looks

How it smells

This aromatic white possesses fruit-forward aromas that literally leap out of the glass and they bring to mind a melange of peaches, ruby red grapefruit, and passion fruit with perfectly balanced notes of dried citrus, and jasmine.

How it tastes

This Sauvignon Blanc is bright and fresh, with flavours that are reminiscent of peaches, Meyer lemon, white grapefruit, ripe melon, and passion fruit, with impeccably balanced notes of lime and stone fruit. The acidity is juicy and mouthwatering, while the mid-palate is full and complex and is complemented by a crisp, lingering finish.

Recommended food pairing

Serve this crisp white with oysters on the half shell, with a sprinkling of zesty mignonette sauce, or pair with a tangy fattoush salad.
