Crescere Sauvignon Blanc

Lively, inviting, and fresh while delivering depth, complexity, and elegance, Crescere Sauvignon Blanc ($60) is one of the prettiest white wines we have sipped lately. Perfect for summertime enjoyment, with bright acidity that is complemented with a rich, round palate thanks to partial new French oak fermentation, with the wine undergoing partial malolactic fermentation. Using these techniques in winemaking is usually designated for Chardonnay, but allowing the Sauvignon Blanc from sustainably farmed Richie Vineyard in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley brings the creamy richness of the wine to the forefront. Crafted under the watchful guidance of one of the finest Sauvignon Blanc winemakers in the world, Phillip Melka (winemaker for another favorite, the stunning white wines of Lail Vineyard) the wine has elegant refinement with vibrant character. Layers of fresh cream, honeydew, and blanched almond meld with grapefruit zest, citrus blossom, and fresh flowers. Balanced and beautiful, perfect sipped solo or to compliment any light spring or summer dish from fish to pasta to poultry. #Cheers
