The 2020 vintage of Bonterra Sauvignon Blanc reflects a blend of organically-farmed vineyards throughout California. The growing season was cool and mild, which allowed the grapes to mature slowly and develop vivid flavor. An August heat spike accelerated ripening, creating a bright fruit character in the glass. Following harvest in late August and early September, the Sauvignon Blanc fruit was destemmed and pressed. Slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel allowed the varietal’s vibrant character to shine through. Before bottling, the wine spent a couple of months aging in stainless steel, without any oak contact, to preserve its fresh and inviting style.

This lively Sauvignon Blanc opens with the unmistakable aroma of grapefruit, woven over an exotic thread of kumquat, mango, and passionfruit. The expressive nose gives way to a crisp and lively palate, culminating in a mouthwatering finish.

Bonterra's holistic approach to winemaking took root in 1987, when they were experimenting with wine and food pairings. The fruits, vegetables and herbs they used came from their extensive organic garden. The purity, intensity and freshness of the flavors were amazing. From that point on, they committed themselves to growing grapes organically. Today they are one of the standard bearers for organic wines in California.

Floral notes persist on the mouth and are key to the profile of this spring garden of a wine. Hibiscus, honeysuckle, mango, and just-squeezed lime are gracefully “zippy.”
