RouteStock Route 29 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016
From the purveyor who's been on the Top 100 List at Wine Spectator at least once, we have the Routestock Route 29 Sauvignon Blanc. It's bright and lively, with exotic fruit aromas and flavors mixed with the slightest hint of earthiness, all wrapped in deliciously flinty minerality. Full glasses of this stuff with coconut fried shrimp to snack on will instantly create happy diners. Not into frying? How about honey garlic butter shrimp in coconut milk instead? Follow that up with a big bowl of pasta tossed with a fresh basil pesto, and don't be stingy with the Parmesan! A buttery chicken korma curry over fluffy jasmine rice is another tasty choice. What are you hungry for winelovers?
Wine Enthusiast: "Slate and stone provide a mineral character to this white wine, fermented in both concrete egg and oak. Mouthfilling and youthful, it offers strong flavors of green apple amidst a steely, complex body of light-bodied weight." Jul 2018
Winery: "The aromas jump out of the glass like no other sauvignon blanc and are reminisicent of honeydew, kiwi, grapefruit and bougainvillea. The palate has that great combination of strength and lift that is magical in sauvignon blanc when it happens. The flavors are that of lemongrass, kiwi, toasted pine nuts, figs, white grapefruit and curry. The finish is amazingly long for such a bright wine with all of the aromatic lift. The wine leaves you salivating from its savory side and thirsty for more from the acidity. Enjoy this wine as much as we enjoyed making it!"
