2017 Finley Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc - Sans Wine Co.
Bright gooseberry, dewy grass, fresh squeezed lime. White peach, elderflower, melon rind. Mint leaf and black currant bud, citrus blossom and flower petal. Clean green pear and kiwi lead a somewhat restrained medley of primary fruits and florals, eschewing depth and power in favor of simple straightforward refreshment. Grassy pyrazinic character is clearly yet delicately observable before giving way to gravely minerals and a pinch of salinity. Medium minus in body with mild acidity and a real sense of gluggability. This 2017 Finley Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc by Sans Wine Co. is a tasty single vineyard porch pounder from Lake County.
Located just north of Napa and east of Mendocino, Lake County is a unique wine growing area thats topography is defined by California's single largest lake known as Clear Lake. The region contains heavily volcanic soils and also benefits from moderate temperatures thanks to its high elevation. This wine, crafted by Sans Wine Co. using Sauvignon Blanc sourced from the Finley Road Vineyard, is a fine example of white wine from Lake County. It is fresh, clean, and immensely refreshing, showcasing a friendly and agreeable side of the variety. While crafted in a straightforward and can-friendly style this is well made and quite delicious. Another fun single vineyard canned wine from Sans.
