The grapes that went into making the Mirassou Sauvignon Blanc were sourced from a number of California's premier wine-growing regions, including Northern Sonoma and the Central Coast. The grapes were harvested during the night and early in the morning in order to keep the fruit cool to preserve the delicate aromas and flavors. At the winery, they were whole cluster pressed to minimize harsh phenolics. The juice was settled before racking to the fermenter which results in a cleaner fermentation and more elegant mouthfeel. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks for approximately 14-21 days at 60 - 62° F. After fermentation, it was racked for settling and blending. The wine was aged in the bottle for two months prior to release.
Displaying a soft mouthfeel and crisp flavors of tropical fruit and melon balanced with hints of grapefruit and pear, our Mirassou California Sauvignon Blanc is a bright expression of California's most celebrated growing regions.
A versatile wine, our refreshing Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with a range of foods from spicy Thai dishes to summer salads and pasta.
