The Beaucanon Estate has just announced the release of their 2007 Sauvignon Blanc, a ”mineral wine with blends of citrus, floral aromas and of tropical passion fruit, mango and kiwi flavors.” This newest wine in their collection was produced at their estate in Napa Valley, using grapes grown right on the hillside at the High Valley vineyards.
From their press release yesterday, “This year’s Beaucanon Estate 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is an extremely versatile and drinkable wine and has the capacity to go with seafood and white meats such as chicken, veal, turkey and pork and will hold up nicely to herbal preparations (thyme, rosemary, basil, tarragon, and coriander). This wine has vibrant mineral and fruity flavors that compliment spicy and ethnic cuisines, as well as traditional French fare.
“Our family has always worked to make high quality wines, with the latest vineyard, and fermentation techniques. We knew the quality of this Sauvignon Blanc was impressive when tasting it during fermentation,” said Chantal de Coninck.
The wine is expected to be available in mid-November and will retail for approximately $20.00.
