Mt. Veeder Sauvignon Blanc, 2018

Produced by Crossroads by Rudd

Grown on Mt. Veeder above the fog line, the Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc is a unique expression of the varietal. Rarely grown at this elevation, the Sauvignon Blanc has great natural acidity and fruit elements including stone fruit, white flower, and lime zest. The acidity and fruit components are complemented with depth and texture from the Semillon and Sauvignon Gris, making this wine great by itself or coupled with food.
