Located just south of Healdsburg, Foppiano Vineyards sits on 160 acres in the acclaimed Russian River Valley. The Foppiano family has been producing world class fruit on this land since its purchase in 1896. Sauvignon Blanc derives perceptively pleasant aromas and flavor complexity from brief skin contact. The grapes are machine-harvested at night and early morning, to ensure that the fruit is cool. The fruit was harvested on September 12, 2018 (100% stainless steel fermentation). The lightly-crushed grapes sit in half-ton bins for 2-3 hours before being pressed into tanks for cold settling. 48 to 72 hours later, the cleanest juice is racked into tanks for a slow, cool fermentation. Post fermentation, a small percentage of the finished wine goes to neutral oak barrels to enhance the mouth-feel and finish.
Serve slightly chilled and enjoy on its own or pair with any seafood dish, salads, chicken or pork and assorted cheeses.
