The Girls in the Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||California, North Coast, Lake County|
|Brand||The Girls in the Vineyard|
What the girls look like: A pale straw yellow that reminds us of Languedoc sunflowers or the mustard that brightens the valleys of California's wine country every spring. What the girls smell like: A bowl of July's freshest fruit with a touch of minerality. What the girls feel like: That same feeling of riding your bike to a river and dipping your legs over a dock into the circling eddies below even if you're wearing your best Sunday dress. It is refreshing and alive and especially memorable for anyone over 21. So put on crisp linens or cut-off jeans and enjoy a distinct yet delicate white wine experience that can be enjoyed and shared. What the girls taste like: Citrus and the crispness of fresh cut pineapple that finishes with a bit of lemongrass and fig. Matchmaking the girls: When it comes to romancing food, these girls pair up without a lot of fuss or prep time. Our girls have pretty varied tastes so they'll confidently befriend a variety of appetizers, entrees and culinary adventures. If it is something you might squeeze a lemon on, you can enthusiastically introduce it to Sauvignon Blanc. Think crab cakes, smoked salmon, stuffed oysters or lightly sauced chicken. You could even try some Caribbean with a little Bob Marley. Whether in your home, poolside, or perched on a cafe table downtown, you'll find that the girls in the vineyard are very flexible and ready to animate any occasion.

Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc 2019Our Sauvignon Blanc pushes the boundaries of the typical New Zealand avor pro le.
