The sun is shining, and the pool is officially open for the season. This wine is for the moment you know summer is here! The 2020 Eleven Eleven Sauvignon Blanc from the Beckstoffer Melrose Vineyard embodies the essence of summertime.

Brightly shining and as clear as a perfect day, the wine has just a tad more color than last year. Initially, you are treated aromas of tropical fruit; kiwis and pineapple followed seamlessly with the invigorating scents of gardenia and meyer lemon. The palate awakens the senses with flavors of crisp green apples and lemon meringue accompanied by mouthwatering acidity. These classic flavors are balanced by softness brought by more time in neutral oak barrels. With a glass of this wine in your hand your summer is sure to start off right!

Winemaker Notes
Everyone knows the renowned Beckstoffer legacy for their opulent and famous Cabernets. Now, for the very first time, Beckstoffer is introducing a vineyard designate Sauvignon Blanc and Eleven Eleven is among the first Melrose Vineyard clients to use this classification. This wine is explosive and showcases the power and freshness of this Rutherford terroir. - Kirk Venge
