2019 Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc | Russian River Valley, Sonoma County California 750ml


The Russian River Valley is an ideal spot to grow Sauvignon Blanc. Warm days and cool nights allow grapes to hold onto their natural acidity. While 2019 was our last wet growing season, with three "atmospheric rivers" in May, it did not affect the Sauvignon Blanc flowering or set. It did produce very vigorous vine growth, which led us to be proactive with our canopy management in order to get the ripe tropical flavors we aim for in our Sauvignon Blanc. Barrel fermentation in 100 percent French oak, 18 percent new, plus twice-weekly lees stirring helped build body and lend a hint of sweet oak.
Abundant aromas of tropical fruit leap from the glass, white pineapple, ripe passionfruit, mango and guava, and a hint of banana cream pie. The palate is round and open, with accents of ruby red grapefruit, honeysuckle and melon married with a burst of crisp, refreshing acidity. | Merry Edwards

This white offers a complex mix of lime sherbet, makrut lime leaf, lemon curd and orange blossom flavors that are fragrant and complex on a fleshy, succulent frame, with notes of nectarine and ripe Crenshaw melon. Harmonious, with a fresh thread of acidity on the finish. | 94 points, MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator Insider

Aged sur lie for four months...the floral components we have come to love from this wine, year after year, do not disappoint. An English garden shows off a luxury of scents and flavors, white petals scattered on a bright Spring day. Juicy pear and white peach are enhanced by a hint of guava. Lush on the mouth, with an inherent crispness from this variety. |94 points, Meridith May, Tasting Panel Magazine

Aromas of nutmeg, melon and white peach. Weighty but balanced mouthfeel, combining disparate flavours of pecan oil, cheese rind, oregano and vanilla bean. Opulent on the mid-palate before landing on the finish with a pointed acidity that integrates with time in the glass. Strikes a stylistic midpoint between birght, creamy, and aromatically exuberant. | 91 points, Matthew Luczy, Decanter
