Sauvignon Blanc

Many Amador County wineries make excellent sauvignon blanc, a crisp, zesty, medium-bodied white wine with bright citrus and melon fruit often accented with herbal tones. Because Amador is a warm growing region, its sauvignon blancs tend more toward the citrus/melon end of the spectrum, with little overt herbaceousness, and make a fine accompaniment to simply prepared seafood and poultry dishes.
