While not having the history as one of California’s “stand out” varietals, our Sourcing Team has found a Sauv Blanc vintage that deserves a serious shout-out! Our long-standing relationship with the growers has ensured our Members are getting one of the most graceful Bordeaux-styled whites at an unbelievable value.
Reasons why we love it
It maybe cliche for us to say a great wine starts with a great grape, but with access to some of the finest coastal vineyards - a whopping 25,000 acres of premium California grapes to be exact - this winery is destined for exceptional wines. According to a Wine Business article, Doug Walker, Chief Executive Officer of Plata Wine Partners said, “Our consistent grape supply simply cannot be matched when compared to other sourcing options such as the bulk wine market.”
Plus, over 35 years of combined winemaking talent are put into this vintage. Director of Winemaking Alison Crowe and Assistant Winemaker Barbara Ignatowski were destined to turn wine dreams into reality, from the ground up. This winemaking duo has created a highly enjoyable Sauvignon Blanc, a real reflection of their ability to produce top quality vintage after top quality vintage.
This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc expresses the best of the Sonoma Valley appellation with refreshing aromas of Meyer lemon intermingled with a touch of minerality. Crisp citrus fruit flavors fill the palate followed by an elegant and fresh finish.
Plata Wine Company (PWC) is an urban winery committed to crafting world class wines from meticulously grown grapes. Plata Wine Company has 9 and a half acres of vineyards in Paso Robles, where we are adamant about keeping the crop yields low. PWC strives to make wines that showcase the terroir of the wine. We make our wines along the lines of the classic French winemaking traditions, which spotlight the character of the grapes and vineyards. We believe that a well made wine tells a story. Wine should tell the story of the land, the air and the season where the grapes are grown. One just has to smell and taste the wine to listen to the tale. All of our wines are hand crafted, and made in small lots, to ensure that our wines tell this tale.
Great with ranges of food, including green salad topped by Chèvre cheese, grilled seafood, and spicy Mexican or Asian cuisine.
