Winery Notes:
The 2010 vintage will go down in history as being on of the most extreme and difficult in California. The vintage began with a cold spring and early season rains, followed by persistent fog that would remain until late morning or early afternoon. In mid-August, the cool summer was then hit with record-high temperatures, that peaked at 116 degrees Fahrenheit. This heat was devastating for many varieties, yet Sauvignon Blanc fared well. In general, th cooler temperatures resulted in longer hangtime for Sauvignon Blanc, which produced complex concentrated flavors, yet bright acidity.

Tasting Notes:
The 2010 Roth Estate Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of fresh flowers and dried citrus notes. One the palate, the wine is bright and refreshing with balanced notes of grapefruit, key lime and fresh tropical flavors. Fermented entirely in stainless-steel tanks, it has bright acidity and a minerality accent in its crisp, persistent finish.
