Soulstruck Sauvignon Blanc
This 2018 Soulstruck Sauvignon Blanc is from fruit grown in one of the most interesting Sauvignon Blanc vineyards in California; namely ours. I say one of the most interesting because ours is a very cool climate vineyard in an area, the Sta. Rita Hills, that is usually reserved for Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. In fact, ours is the only Sauvignon Blanc vineyard currently in the Sta. Rita Hills. As a result, the wine is saturated with beautiful flavors and texture.
In our branding, Soulstruck is synonymous with white wine varietals that touch the winemaker’s soul, in this case the fully flavored Sauvignon Blanc. It’s all about capturing and taming varietals that have lots of definition and nerve. The appellation on the label is Santa Barbara County, which allows us to more broadly source exciting new varietals like Vermentino (Rolle), Clairette and Picpoul, along with Sauvignon Blanc.
In this wine, it’s hard to argue with the beautiful cherimoya and white pear in the nose. With a beautiful texture on the palate to boot, and at this price, it’s another winner.
