Sweetzer Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2018
SAN LOUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA
Complex, layered with a great mouthfeel. Hints of citrus, a smidge of the tropics, rich without being blowsy. A compelling white wine with a high deliciousness quotient. Aged 75% in stainless to preserve the beautiful fruit and 25% in one-year old French oak to lend the wine weight, body, and an additional layer of yumminess.
About the Winery:
Inspired by a summer trip to France in 2008, Husband and wife, Michael and Lisa began making wine in a second story, white-carpeted apartment in West Hollywood on Sweetzer Ave. Blissfully unaware of the challenges facing them, they hauled Cabernet grapes from Napa and Sonoma. They crushed in the carport, fermented in the dining room, and pressed in the kitchen. The bedroom, kept at 60 degrees, served as their cellar. In 2011, they decided to try their hand at Pinot Noir, and finally found their home. Their tasting room resides in Lompoc welcoming guests on the weekends.
