One of our favorite times of the year is just after harvest when the white wines are done fermenting and still in the tanks. They're chilled to the low 40's to keep them fresh and stable and fill the cellar with beautiful aromas. Cold fermented in stainless steel for 6 weeks, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc shows aromatics of lemon zest and fresh-cut pear that lead to crisp flavors of grapefruit and a hint of peaches. Serve this wine chilled alongside seafood, light pasta dishes, and chicken with basil and garlic.

Ripe, rounded and full bodied, this wine offers ripe apple and pear flavors that are especially mouthfilling. The addition of 15% Sémillon may account for that. A tangy foundation of acidity keeps it well balanced.JIM GORDON
