Our Pinot Noir has a sibling, and it’s white, crisp, juicy, mouthwatering, and smells good: Lucky Rock 2018 County Cuvée Sauvignon Blanc. That’s pretty much all you need to know to enjoy it (except for the price, below), but for those that gotta know more, it’s a blend of grapes harvested from California’s-best-kept-secret-for-sauvignon-blanc, Lake County, and that four-letter-word Napa Valley. We fermented it in big steel tanks that keeps the juicy fruit front-and-center, and aged it in some barrels to let it breath and add a kiss of a vanilla note.
The 2018 Lucky Rock County Cuvee Sauvignon Blanc begins with a strong, enticing aroma of citrus, lime, mint and lots of melon that sucks you right into the glass. My first thought upon tasting was “Oh la la, this is some good Sauvignon Blanc!” The medium-bodied wine features wonderful depth of flavor, crisp acidity and a smooth, slightly creamy texture. The more you sip, the more layers you uncover. It complemented our dinner of grilled Tuscan pork chops, roasted butternut squash and brussels sprout really well. It ends with a mouthwatering finish of grapefruit, zesty lime and really good length. Truly delicious, this is a lip smacker!
