The fruit sourced for this Sauvignon Blanc comes from vineyards located in the cooler appellations of Carneros and the Russian River Valley which bring grassy characteristics to the wine, as well as grapes from the warmer Sonoma Valley which impart melon and tropical fruit flavors. On the nose, you will find notes of passion fruit, lychee, and white peach with hints of lemongrass and fresh ginger root. The flavor and aromas result in a complex and well-balanced wine.
Located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley, Kenwood Vineyards is dedicated to producing premium wines truly representative of Sonoma County’s world-class vineyards. Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Thoroughly refurbished and modernized, the facility now boasts more than 125 stainless steel fermenting tanks and large oak uprights, and 20,000 small French and American oak barrels, all devoted to Kenwood Vineyards’ “small lot” style of winemaking.
