The 2021 Joel Gott California Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of honeydew melon, peaches and lychee with citrus notes. On the palate, the wine opens with tropical fruit flavours followed by crisp, refreshing acidity on the mid-palate and notes of ruby red grapefruit on the long, clean balanced finish. 13.9% ABV.
Across California in 2021, the growing season was long and even, with a dry winter and mild spring temperatures. A warm summer with no heat spikes was followed by mild temperatures in the fall, allowing us to pick our fruit in August. These conditions produced smaller, more concentrated fruit clusters resulting in great flavor and acidity making for a complex and well-balanced wine.
