Carmel Road Sauvignon Blanc 2022

California, United StatesThis wine is the child of the cool Pacific breezes that sweep across the Monterey Peninsula in the early to mid-afternoon. By late afternoon, the temperature can fall by 15 degrees, and the wind can be so fierce it hinders photosynthesis, extending the growing season. The temperatures can fall into the 50s at night while the winds blow unrelentingly. By sunrise, all is still, the vineyards sit in fog, and low clouds obscure the mountains before the cycle repeats in the late morning. The result is a refreshing sauvignon with a lemony base, blood orange, and grapefruit. It is becoming a much more serious sauvignon. Ready to drink with a variety of fresh seafood.Tasted: 04 March 2024Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
