2012 White Meritage
Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon vines do spectacularly well in Knights Valley, making for intensely flavored, varietally true wines. The grapes were all handpicked from the shady hillside of Bavarian Lion Vineyards. The loam soil and shade provides for more vigorous fruit flavors and preserves the grapes’ inherent acidity that keeps a white wine balanced.
Our 2012 White has an aroma of sweet pea, lemonade, and pear. Peach, grapefruit, honey, and lime zest nuances mingle in the flavors. Elegant, but with a vibrant intensity of flavors, the wine has a crisp, refreshing finish. It is recommended with green salads, seafood, and even grilled chicken with a light marinade.
