Weekly Wine Pick: 2010 Gary Farrell Sauvignon Blanc Redwood Ranch!

This week's wine pick hails from California's Sonoma County, home to many a world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The 2010 Gary Farrell Sauvignon Blanc Redwood Ranch is neither, yet represents a delightful choice for the steamy days of Summer at a more affordable price.

The pioneering Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery is best known for producing single vineyard Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from the Russian River Valley but has also created this lovely expression of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The fruit for this wine is sourced from Redwood Ranch located at the extreme southern end of the Alexander Valley. The Redwood Ranch has been producing exceptional fruit for the past five decades and growers Jim and Gayle Reed are committed to implementing sustainable winegrowing methods to ensure that tradition continues.

This 100% Sauvignon Blanc has a lovely pale straw hue with alluring aromas of citrus, peach and a hint of vanilla. On the palate flavors of juicy citrus, white peach, grass and a refreshing acidity make it very hard to put this wine down! This is a delicious wine for Summer and, with a kiss of oak, it has more complexity than your everyday Sauvignon Blanc. While it's perfect for enjoying on its own, it will also pair beautifully with the bright, fresh flavors of Summer including salads, grilled chicken and especially shellfish!
