Echo Ridge Sauvignon Blanc

Echo Ridge Sauvignon Blanc

Our Sauvignon Blanc opens with classic aromas of freshly cut grass, accented by layered notes of Kaffir lime, kiwi and citrus blossom. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine is bright and crisp, with flavors of melon, grapefruit, pear and pineapple, all framed by an inviting mouthfeel and a lingering finish.

In 2016, our Sauvignon Blanc was harvested at peak ripeness in a warm August, when grape sugars and acids achieved ideal balance for this expressive, fruit-forward variety. Grapes were whole cluster-pressed, then fermented in 100% stainless steel, with partial lees contact to enhance the mouthfeel.
