2019 Sauvignon Blanc

 

Vintage

2019 vintage in Yakima Valley and Columbia Valley WA was an ideal slow-motion challenge for white grapes. A normal Summer was followed by lower than usual temperatures in early Fall, which turned out to be very handy in keeping naturally refreshing acidity levels. Crop control was also a key tool to prevent delayed ripening and other serious issues. Overall, the grapes were elegantly balanced, profoundly aromatic and had medium sugar levels helping to stir away from unpleasant high alcohol levels.

 

Winemaking

Different techniques were utilized to boost the natural elegance of this variety. Extended cold maceration, cold fermentation and sur lie helped to develop an eclectic array of flavors, with a soft round texture and a zesty finish. Because for some, it is all about expressing the story the vineyard wants to tell written by a Winemakers patient guidance, oak was not used at all. We are not fans of Sauvignon Blanc oak soup…

 

Tasting Notes

The 2019 Ficarra Cellars Sauvignon Blanc elicits a wide array of sweet aromas such as lychee, passionfruit, feijoa, roses, white flowers, limes all intertwined with herbal flavors, fresh asparagus, and jalapeño. This eclectic wine can be shared and enjoyed as an aperitif in a hot outdoors Summer, or paired with Mahi, Sushi, Spaghetti Marinara, Bruschetta, and Caprese salad with Pesto.
