Blue Quail Sauvignon Blanc has great aromas and flavors of orange blossom, jasmine, honeydew melon, spice and grapefruity citrus. Crisp, lively with good acid. Long lingering finish. Guinness McFadden has been growing grapes organically for over 40 years. He planted his vineyard on a beautiful piece of land that straddles the Russian River, neighbors the Mendocino National Forest, and sits up at 1,200 feet in altitude. Temperatures regularly plummet each night, allowing a longer maturation period. In this climate, grapes develop a fullness of flavor that is balanced by a crisp acidity.
Food pairing: Light meal with white meat or seafood.
