“The Sauvignon Blanc from Livermore Valley is unrivaled in freshness and clarity of purpose. It’s the varietal that brought Page Mill Winery to Livermore Valley and will be a standard bearer for our mission.
Over the years I have sought after Sauvignon Blanc grapes that minimize the grassiness associated with this varietal and lend itself to clean, crisp aromas and flavors. This particular vineyard, in this appellation is the ultimate expression of this wine.”
Dane Stark, winemaker
Page Mill’s 35th vintage of Sauvignon Blanc shows us why we continue to pursue perfect expression of the grape. From the Ghielmetti Vineyard in Livermore, this wine might remind you of the wonderful whites from Bordeaux. The Sauvignon Blanc’s principle quality is in its youthfulness. Medium to bright acidity leads into a lean, complex finish of fresh fruit and classic Sauvignon Blanc aromas of lemon and spice. It has very little grassy characteristic.
It should be served well chilled and will accompany lighter fare including salads, goat cheese and seafood...the Spanish paella is not to be ignored with this wine…and it is not afraid to “go it alone...” Just open and enjoy.
