MIRACLES, A DELICATE, MOST PLEASING ESTATE BTLD. CALIF. SAUVIGNON BLANC FOR ONLY $8.99 2013 VOGELZANG SANTA BARBARA ESTATE BOTTLED SAUVIGNON BLANC

Yes it is on the delicate light side, but is still wonder-fully refreshing, zesty, most pleasant and most of all exhibits unmistakable Sauvignon Blanc character. The kind of character one associates with California Sauvignon Blanc with its more pronounced fruity (but not sweet) nature as opposed to a dryer wine from say Bordeaux or the upper Loire areas of France.

I would be hard pressed to think of a more pleasant dry white wine now currently on the market and selling for under $10 then this Vogelzang 2013.

On the front label you will see printed “Birdsong Sauvignon Blanc” and if your wondering why this name its because the vineyard owner is Mary Beth Vogelsang, and translating from German the last name into English it becomes (you guessed it) Birdsong.

RATING: 88/89

PRICE: $8.99 *** BARGAIN

Winery Notes:
The 2013 Birdsong Sauvignon Blanc is all fresh aromatics of spring flowers, bright citrus and flinty minerality. We are using 75% steel tank fermentation that preserves the youthful fruit and keeps the palate light and approachable, along with 25% 6–year old Chardonnay oak-barrel treatment to add a smooth mouthfeel and silky roundness to the texture of the wine.

The Bird Song Sauvignon Blanc is a partial blend of the Sauvignon Blanc produced in the neutral oak and wine produced in steel This is also an Estate Wine, however, the grapes are source from newer blocks that are in their fourth leaf and not expressing the mature quality of the Reserve. It also is comprised of only the Sauvignon Blanc 1 clone. It has the bright notes of younger vines.
