Graziano 2014 Sauvignon Blanc
This is Graziano's 10th vintage of Sauvignon Blanc, which is produced in a classic style with aromas and flavors of citrus such as grapefruit and orange peel, supported by undertones of ripe melons and a wonderful minerality. This full-bodied wine has crisp acidity, an oily softness reminiscent of lanolin and a long clean finish. 100% barrel fermentation and “sur-lie” aging for 4 months in neutral French Burgundy oak barrels give this wine complexity and richness that stainless steel tanks cannot duplicate. No malolactic fermentation was allowed that could destroy the wine’s brilliant acidity. 85% Sauvignon Blanc 15% Tocai Friulano.
