2012 CP Sauvignon Blanc Russian River, Hopkins Vyd.
Bob Hopkins vineyard lies along the Russian River off of East Side Road. The plushness of the clone 1 vine grown in the fertile river bed soils helps protect the delicate fruit. Once gently pressed the juice was fermented in tank and then aged in seasoned french barrels. Tartrates (wine crystals) are a sign that the wine was not over-treated.
This SB is a stunning example of what RRV can produce. She often even reminds me of a Sancerre. Floral qualities of Hawthorn & Linden combine with Lime, Quince, Muscat, Almond, Honey, Toast & Minerals. Amazing with oysters, seafood, goat cheese inspired dishes. 13.6% alcohol allows that acid to sing.
