Justin Sauvignon Blanc is a testament to the diverse climates and soils found in the Central Coast, spanning from the cool, limestone-rich Templeton Gap area to the warmer, sandy, river-influenced eastern regions. By blending Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards with varied climates and soils, we’ve crafted the JUSTIN Sauvignon Blanc, offering a clean, textured palate featuring vibrant citrus and tropical fruit notes complemented by a touch of fresh herbs. This is harmoniously balanced with a crisp, refreshing mineral structure. The wine is a versatile choice, serving as a refreshing summer aperitif or a superb companion for a wide range of foods, including cheeses, seafood, appetizers, or tapas.
In the glass, it presents a bright and clear appearance with moderate tears, a pale straw core, and green highlights. The aromatics showcase ripe green apple, lemon zest, peach, white flowers, and hints of limestone. Upon tasting, the medium-bodied wine reveals lively lime and Granny Smith apple at the forefront, followed by flavors of ripe peach, tart pineapple, and lemon balm on the midpalate. The finish, of moderate length, is lean and layered, leaving impressions of fresh citrus, limestone, and white flowers.
The 2022 JUSTIN Sauvignon Blanc proves to be an exceptionally versatile wine, making it an excellent complement to a broad spectrum of dishes. Consider pairing it with halibut ceviche marinated with citrus and a touch of jalapeño pepper, grilled salmon, or prosciutto, fig, and goat cheese toasts.
