Lieu Dit Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley 2017

Founded by longtime friends Eric Railsback and Justin Willett, Lieu Dit seeks to highlight the unique microclimates and soils of Santa Barbara, focusing on Loire Valley grape varieties. The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in both steel and barrel, followed by aging in neutral oak, giving way to a zesty and thirst-quenching wine, full of citrus fruit, chalk, pear, and white flower flavors. The perfect aperitif wine, especially on a warm day!

Sauvignon Blanc

Zippy aromatic vigorous white most readily associated with France (Sancerre; Pouilly-Fumé; Bordeaux Blanc) but truly a world-beater thanks to its citrusy grip and telltale herbaceous aroma.

The ultimate in sunny, borderline tropical Southern California, yet influenced enough by Pacific Ocean fogs to provide cool-enough conditions for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, its twin wine beacons.
