2016 ALMA de CATTLEYA “SONOMA COUNTY” SAUVIGNON BLANC
With more energy than a dozen first graders sent out for recess after a week of rain, Alma de Cattleya’s 2016 Sauvignon Blanc bounds enthusiastically from the glass with a spectacular aromatic display, layered in exotic mangos, passionfruit, caramelized grapefruit and honeyed pear. Arriving in our warehouse just in time for Spring, this beauty was expertly created by Columbia born, French trained winemaker Bibiana Gonzalez Rave, whom many of you may recognize as the winemaker for Pahlmeyer… She’s also previously made wines at Lynmar and has extensive experience making wine in France. Her new Alma de Cattleya label is rapidly increasing in popularity with each cork pulled, setting the bar, for what can be achieved at this realistic price level.
Arising from methodically selected vineyards centered primarily in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast, this beautiful interpretation of cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc was authored using the same exacting standards as the Cattleya single vineyard wines, which retail for around $70/btl. Fermented using a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral French oak barrels, the 2016 graces your palate with tremendous precision and freshness, and doesn’t show any trace of oak aging. If you’re on the lookout for a fresh, energized Sauvignon Blanc, perfect for Spring and Summer… This is it.

Tasting Notes: "A beautiful, Sancerre-like bouquet bursts from the glass, layered with exotic mangos, passionfruit, white flowers and chamomile. Vibrant and fresh on the palate with pristine acidity and a laser focus. Dazzling flavors of poached pear, honeyed melon, orange rind and assorted citrus fruit culminate in a perfect harmony. A truly remarkable value in California Sauvignon Blanc."
