2017 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc
Rutherford, Napa Valley
There is something about the 2017 Eleven Eleven Sauvignon Blanc that almost makes it seem wrong to drink indoors; this wine was made for sunlight. Grown in the historic red earth of Napa Valley’s Rutherford AVA, this wine certainly has pedigree, but it comes across with so much charm and joy that it would be easy to look past it. With a shimmering clarity, this delightful wine enchants with the fresh aromas of gardenias and white peaches lilting in on a soft breeze. With such captivating scents, it is only appropriate that the wine beguiles on the palate as well with an uplifting, bright acidity that effortlessly refreshes and supports the flavors of key lime and fresh-picked peaches. The acidity gently clings to the palate even after setting the glass down which makes this a perfect wine for pairing with summer foods. So pull out your best linen, your favorite wicker picnic basket, some wine glasses, and your most fun friends because this wine is an instant summer classic.
