Quivira 2020 "Fig Tree" Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Creek Valley
All the elements of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc converge at Fig Tree Vineyard. The site is located at the confluence of two waterways, Wine Creek and Dry Creek. The wine's mineral freshness comes from the alluvial, rocky soils that have been scoured over millennia. The rare Musqué clone adds complexity and aromatic lift. Simply put, the right grape + the right place = Fig Tree Sauvignon Blanc.
Aromas of Meyer lemon, key lime, apricot and fig leaf. These notes of white flowers, jalapeno, gravel and freshly watered grass. In the mouth the tart lemon, lime and tangerine. High acidity is tempered with river rock minerality, white flowers and orange pith which changes to a fleshy, ripe tangerine on the finish.
