Foppiano Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Foppiano, Russian River Valley, Estate Bottled, Sauvignon Blanc 2009 The nose is clean and expresses ripe citrus, as in fresh oranges. Add to that an accent of tropical fruit, a whiff of bananas and floral notes, of the sweet and spicy variety.

In the mouth the fresh fruits come through, carried along by the natural acidity found in grapes grown in the Russian River. At the same time it is a Sauvignon that emphasizes California sunshine and the full flavor development it can produce – very nice.

Production was all stainless steel and the wine is bottled under a screwcap closure. Grown, produced and bottled in Healdsburg 14% $18 at the winery, a media sample.
