The goal with our Echo Ridge Sauvignon Blanc is to capture the true varietal
character of the Sauvignon Blanc grape and preserve the full range of flavors
through anaerobic processing and cool fermentation in stainless steel. The wine
is as clean and crisp in style as possible, and for that reason it pairs well with a
wide range of foods.
This wine has fresh aromas of green apples, fresh grass, and lemon. In the
mouth, the wine is bright and full, with clean flavors of tarragon, lemon, and
green apple. Subtle hints of lime and fresh mint add complexity. The finish is
clean and crisp.
