Scheid Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Monterey|
Sauvignon Blanc does best when it is fermented in only stainless steel tanks (no oak), allowing the bright crisp nature of the fruit to shine through. That's exactly what we have done with our Estate Sauvignon Blanc. This wine provides enjoyable notes of Meyer lemon, lime kefir, lychee, white peach, and Asian pear, along with hints of tangerine and guava, which give way to a mild acidity that supports the structure of the wine. There are also light herbal and grass notes lurking in the background and a mild tartness creating a wine made for food, family gatherings and fun times ahead.
Aromas of green pear, lime peel and lawn clippings show on the zesty nose of this bottling. There's a fresh and easy energy to the palate, where green apple peel, red apple and guava flavors slide into the finish.
Extremely pale straw. Ripe citrus fruit and melon qualities on the nose and in the mouth. Supple and open-knit, showing good depth and a touch of bitter herbacity on the back half. Finishes warm and smooth, with a repeating melon note and a hint of fennel.
