Fiddlehead Cellars Happy Canyon Sauvignon Blanc 2013


SKU 851224000501


Our signature, Loire-styled Sauvignon Blanc. This silky-textured wine illustrates the beauty of the blend and tames this varietal into amazing elegance: 1/3 fermented in stainless steel for bright aromatics and zinginess, 1/3 fermented in new French oak barrels for layered textures and persistent flavors and the final third fermented in neutral French oak barrels to achieve marriage and grace. A chic, less herbal style, with little hints of cloves (according to Maya in Sideways!). Intentionally given a few years of bottle age prior to release to assure a seamless entrance onto your palate. Named for both its style and its AVA source, Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara. A very versatile crowd pleaser!

Wine EnthusiastA slight hint of petrol on the nose of this wine by veteran Kathy Joseph then ventures into delicate and soft aromas of preserved lemons and scratched grapefruit skin. It's edgy in style, treading a pithy line of tangelo, pomelo and yellow grapefruit, with racy and lingering lemon-spritz acidity.
