Marier Sauvignon Blanc

Marier Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $15.99 per bottle

Description: “This is our first Sauvignon Blanc produced exclusively from Cold Creek fruit. I like to call it our ‘Wild Thing’ wine because of its complexity and bold expression of Washington fruit. Crafted in an Old World style, it exudes aromas of grass and sweet pea and delivers flavors of white grapefruit, slate and wet stone. This is an excellent wine to pair with many types of cuisine.” - Bob Bertheau, Winemaker

Varietal Definition
Sauvignon Blanc:
Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California — at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety — and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’. When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the wine world’s darlings. Steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character characterize dry wines made from this grape.
