Trione Sauvignon Blanc River Road Ranch
Trione
United States - California - Russian River Valley

White peaches, nectarines and mandarin zest are the first hints on the nose. The acidity and sweetness on the palate are in perfect balance. This wine is mouth-watering and leaves one craving for fresh oysters, sourdough baguettes, aged gouda, a sandy beach and a setting sun. Cheers!

Vinification
The making of the Sauvignon Blanc utilized traditional methods of hand harvesting and whole bunch pressing to ensure the highest quality juice. The South African yeast strain, Alchemy II, was used for fermentation. This yeast strain imparts fresh gooseberry and grassiness to the wine which balances the fresh fruit components on the palate and finish. If you close your eyes and sip, you may see visions of the Loire Valley or perhaps the Marlborough region of the South Island of New Zealand.
Aged 4 months in French oak

Pairings

This rich, creamy Sauvignon Blanc is an ideal complement to fresh Dungeness crab, local King salmon, or a crusty baguette spread generously with ripe chèvre.

wine enthusiast 92 pts"Made in a refreshingly light and bright style, this wine shines in stony minerality—its bite is of green apple, its aroma laced in hibiscus. Smooth and sublime on the palate, with clean, focused flavors, it adds a note of grapefruit pith that pierces the finish."

"While shelves out there are full of Chard, among the whites in our competition, Sauvignon Blanc offered the most well-balanced, well-priced bottles. Time to switch to Sauvignon?"

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Grassy lime, kiwi and crème brûlée provide succulence and substance to this wine, surrounded refreshingly by ebullient acidity. Fermented in stainless steel, it was then aged minimally in neutral French oak. The wood provides firm structure without getting in the way of the fruit."

wine enthusiast 90 pts"The family farms 125 acres in the Russian River Valley, where the Sauvignon Blanc is planted in gravelly soils. The resulting wine is stately in bristling acidity, ripe melon, peach and a sneaky streak of jalapeño that gives intrigue. Juicy and ripe, it offers a moderate level of richness that's pleasing on the palate. - Virginie Boone"
