About Joel Gott 2020 Sauvignon Blanc, California
Due to the Northern California wildfires, sourcing for this 2020 Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc is primarily from Santa Barbara, with its diverse soil types and microclimates, allows them to create a wine that stays true to style. Fruit from the cooler, marine-influenced vineyards add crisp, clean minerality and well-balanced acidity while fruit from vineyards located more inland experience morning coastal fog and afternoon wines, adding to the wine’s tropical notes. Blending fruit from these varied growing regions created a balanced, food-friendly wine.
To preserve the wine’s fruit and natural acidity, the wine underwent a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Finally, the lots are blended, taking care to balance the characteristics of each vineyard in the wine.
This wine has aromas of honeydew melon, pineapple, white peach and juicy pear with citrus notes. On the palate, the wine opens with ripe, tropical fruit flavors followed by crisp refreshing acidity on the mid-palate and notes of ruby red grapefruit on the long, clean balanced finish.
