Immediately aromatic from the get go with classic straw color and hints of green around the edges. Notes of fig (of course!), baked pear, and white flowers leap from the glass. Balanced and brisk, flavors of guava, passion-fruit, lime zest, gooseberry, loads of tropical fruit, white grapefruit rind, and subtle spice from the acacia barrels meld effortlessly. There is a delightful acidity mid-palate that carries through to the long finish to refresh the palate. This wine is crisp, salivating, and aromatic. We continue to be thrilled with the ageability of our Sauvignon Blancs. From our regular library tastings, we know this wine will continue to improve through 2027-2028. The natural acidity of this racy Fig Tree Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc lends itself to fattier dishes, porchetta, wild salmon cakes, or a fava bean purée spread on crostini.

Outer quote mark Verbena, beeswax and matcha green tea notes give way to a succulent, polished core of lemon curd, lanolin and quince flavors. Powerfully intense and focused, but the mouthwatering acidity keeps the flavors vivid, fresh and light-footed. (MW) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

From certified-organic grapes fermented in both stainless steel and neutral oak, this lovely and balanced wine tastes of peaches, white flowers and stones. Fresh, high toned and grassy, it lingers in both acidity and dried herb, impressing in both length and grace.

The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Fig Tree Vineyard has gregarious scents of guava, lychee, fresh herbs, warm peaches and musky perfume. The palate is light-bodied with a gently rounded texture and zesty acidity, finishing long and perfumed. 1,312 cases produced.
