HOOPES COOMBSVILLE SAUVIGNON BLANC
2017
Wine Details

“Gardenias are as pretty as they are fragrant and I chose one for the label in honor of my grandmother as this was her favorite flower. She couldn't resist the charm of those fluffy, creamy white blossoms nestled against a rich green base of sturdy leaves and planted many varieties in her flower garden. I have lovely childhood memories of her always smelling like them, intensely warm and sweet, the epitome of a long, dreamy summer. I think it was her perfume as well as the cut flowers she would bring into her house once blooming season started. I know she would have been so proud to see how far our little family winery has come and this is my way of making her forever part of it.”

Tasting Notes
“This wine is a rare find with Sauvignon Blanc comprising only 4% of vines planted in the Coombsville sub-appellation. Inviting even as it sits in the glass: clear, pale straw and brilliant. Lovely fresh floral, citrus and pleasing herbal aroma of chervil hint at what is to come. Refreshing and savory in the mouth the energetic lemon, white grapefruit and heady white peach flavors are contained and broadened in the mid-palate as the delicate suggestion of powdery soft oak taps the brakes reminding us to slow down and savor this delicate and complex wine.”
