Pellegrini Wine Company
Sauvignon Blanc

Pellegrini wines have earned a reputation for consistent quality. Their wines are made from grapes sourced from select vineyards in Russian River Valley & Sonoma County, including Olivet Lane Vineyard. The winemaking style emphasizes balance over power and exhibit regional characteristics representative of the appellations. Pellegrini wines have won numerous gold medals and trade press accolades. They are dedicated to making small-lot wines, handcrafting vineyard designated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from our estate-grown grapes and regional appellation blends.

Sauvignon Blanc thrives in Lake County, where the high elevation, intense sunshine and cool nights collaborate to ripen Sauvignon Blanc to express exceptional aromatic intensity while maintaining brilliant acidity. Leveroni Vineyard, planted in 2000, has been the source for single vineyard bottlings for Pellegrini since the 2003 vintage.

Vinification
Fruit was harvested in the cool early morning hours and pressed whole cluster. The wine experienced an extended cool fermentation in stainless steel to preserve the fresh fruit flavors and tropical aromas. Frequent lees stirring was engaged to augment the luscious texture on the palate.

Tasting Notes
Color: The pure essence of Sauvignon Blanc is captured in this vibrant wine from the Leveroni Vineyard
Bouquet: An aroma fragrant with lychee fruit, lime zest, and honeydew melon. Refreshing and persistent crispness balanced by a fine creaminess give this wine a finish that has a textural complexity reminiscent of a lemon meringue.
Flavor: Delicate floral notes of carnation and clover blossom. Flavors lead with green apple and citrus and amplify into white peach, mango, and feijoa in the mouth.
Pairings: Crisp and light, it assures to be a bright and lively accompaniment to a creamy goat cheese tart; yet it has sufficient complexity and depth to complement shrimp ceviche or grilled chicken.
