Westerly 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Happy Canyon

The Westerly 2011 Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Happy Canyon AVA of Santa Barbara County, an emerging region in the very eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley. This bucolic canyon of large horse ranches and hillside vineyards is unique from other Santa Barbara wine regions due to its hotter temperatures and mineral terrior, and it has quickly been recognized for its ability to produce top quality Bordeaux varietals. The Sauvignon Blancs in particular have been highly sought after for their concentrated flavors, excellent terrior expression, and remarkable flavor profile. Westerly’s 2011 Sauvignon Blanc is elegantly crisp with intense, ripe aromas and lively, vibrant flavors of citrus, melon, tobacco, and white pepper. [+]
