Teira 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Dry Creek Valley, Estate

The Teira 2008 Dry Creek Valley Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Woods Vineyard, located in the southern end of the valley on benchland bordering Dry Creek and only a few miles from the Russian River Valley appellation. The vineyard is farmed sustainably and organically by legendary Sonoma County vineyard manager Duff Bevill. Named ‘A Top Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc’ in the San Francisco Chronicle’s Wine & Food Section, the Teira 2008 Sauvignon Blanc strikes a beautiful balance between new world and old world style. Classic Sancerre-like aromas of minerals, lemon zest, and citrus on the nose lead into strong tropical fruit notes of kiwi, grapefruit and tangerine on the mid-palate. Balance and elegance are key descriptors of this wine. Light, crisp and dry, this wine finishes extremely clean with a bright acidity that begs for another sip. [+]
