2020 Merry Edwards Russian River Sauvignon Blanc


Benchmark California Sauvignon Blanc that has been a staff favorite for the last decade. The combination of techniques used to produce this age-worthy style results in a wine of balance, richness and aromatic complexity. A substantial percentage of Sauvignon Musqué adds floral notes and rich body, complementing the underlying herbal nature of the core grape clone — Sauvignon Blanc, Shenandoah. Barrel fermentation in French oak, 18 percent new, builds body by facilitating twice-weekly lees stirring for six months and the extraction of a hint of sweet oak.

About the winemaker: Merry Edwards, one of the founders of famed Matanzas Creek Winery (1977-1984), is one of California’s first woman winemakers. In 1974, she began her career at Mount Eden Vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Wine Spectator – 93
“A pretty thread of orange water adds an aromatic lift to the core of nectarine, apricot and lemon zest flavors, set on a succulent, fleshy frame. Dried ginger, honeysuckle and melon notes linger on the long, expressive finish.”

Wine Advocate – 92
“The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc contains 60 estate fruit this year and 42 of the blend comes from Sauvignon Musque. Barrel fermented and aged in 18 new oak with twice-weekly lees stirring, it has a gregarious nose with gooseberry, tart kiwi, tarragon, cut grass, white peaches and elderflower plus touches of lime and stone. Light to medium-bodied, it offers great flavor intensity with bright, zippy acidity and a long, lightly textured finish.”
