Truchard Vineyards, Sauvignon Blanc “The Shepherd”, Carneros, California 2020
100% Sauvignon Blanc
GRAPEFRUIT PEEL, KEY LIME, GUAVA; BRIGHT, ZESTY
Tony and Jo Ann Truchard established their winery in 1989 and helped pioneer grape growing in Carneros. The cooling winds from the San Pablo Bay combined with lots of daytime sunshine create well-ripened fruit with zesty acidity and intense aromatics. Tell-tale Sauv Blanc citrus, minerality, and acidity sing; decadent aromas of jasmine and passionfruit usher in crisp, clean flavors of lychee, lemon, and sweet pea, leaving you enticed yet satisfied.
Serving Suggestion: Lemon chicken w/ asparagus, shrimp pesto pizza w/ goat cheese, prawn or fish curry laksa, spicy tuna sushi, herbed Boursin or dill Havarti.
