Six Peaks Sauvignon Blanc
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Estate grown Sauvignon Blanc.
- This Sauvignon Blanc is full of layers and complexity.
Varietal Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Elaboration: Fermented both in stainless and oak this wine is unique.
Tasting Notes: The early harvest brought bright acidity, gooseberry, boxwood, and passion fruit to the finished wine. The second harvest, two weeks later, brought fig, lychee, honey and body.
John and Lynn Albin planted their first vineyard in 1981, the Laurel Vineyard located in Laurelwood AVA, OR. This estate vineyard sits atop Bald Peak, which offers a stunning panoramic view of five cascade mountains. Add up all of these peaks and you have 6 Peaks Winery. The Albin’s bring with them many decades of experience in viticulture and winemaking in the Pacific Northwest. Their second label, Lorelle, became an immediate hit when we first brought it in and we jumped at the chance to carry their original winery, Six Peaks Winery.
