2011 Sauvignon Blanc

2011 Sauvignon Blanc

About this Wine

Vineyards

Tin Roof 2011 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from Lake County and Sacramento Delta grapes. Sourcing
fruit from these cool-climate regions enables us to produce a crisp, zesty Sauvignon Blanc that complements a broad array of foods.

Winemaking

Boldly flavored, smoothly textured and unusually complex, Tin Roof wines are designed to please wine lovers seeking distinctive varietal character. Our 2011 Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel tanks, and bottled just a few months after harvest to preserve its fresh, racy aromas and flavors.

Winemaker's Notes

Our Sauvignon Blanc is bright and fresh, with tangy flavors of fresh-cut grass, lime zest and pink grapefruit. It’s an ideal match for lighter seafood dishes, roasted chicken, Caesar salad and mildly spiced Asian cuisines.

Current Vintage Accolades - 2011

Best Buy, 86 Points / Wine Enthusiast Magazine

“This shows real Sauvignon Blanc character in its brisk, mouth-watering acidity. Its green grass and gooseberry notes accompany riper lemon and lime fruit.”

89 Points / Tasting Panel Magazine

“Fresh, racy and juicy with citrus and melon flavors; tangy, silky and balanced; long and crisp.”

4 Swirls / Winey Women

“Crisp, refreshing with succulent grapefruit, lemon/lime and honeydew melon flavors. It’s the perfect match for shellfish, pan-fried trout and snapper, grilled shrimp, herb-roasted chicken, stir-fried veggies, and Caesar and Goat Cheese salads. This Sauvignon Blanc is one of my favorites!”

3+ Stars / Spirit of Wine

“Shows bright, steely and sweet sauvignon blanc notes. Soft, curly, sweet, with enough aromatics and acids to stay clean and interesting. Fresh, full and lively...bright poignancy. Best value.″

Top Value / Snooth.com

“Soft melony sweetness and a bit of fig enlivened with hints of lemon oil and cut grass...nice crisp fruit with hints of melon and grapefruit finish with moderate length and a nice refreshing hint of astringency.”

Sante Magazine

“Aromas and flavors of grapefruit, lime and citrus zest, with hints of gooseberries and grass. Light bodied, crisp and refreshing. Nice by-the-glass choice.”

Sacramento Bee

“Vivacious with suggestions of lime, grapefruit and jalapeño chile pepper.”

Wine Chixs

“A clean, crisp, summer day quencher with hints of lime and pink grapefruit.

TheWineBuzz

“Grassy, white grapefruit aroma with a touch of minerality; tart, crisp, bright and fruity with a clean lemon zest finish.”

The Naked Vine

“Slightly herbal overtones led to a green apple scented nose. This wine’s mouthfeel has pretty reasonable weight with tart apple and lime as the major flavors...flavorful and drinkable.”

86 Points / Intoxicology Report

“Not a super-chiseled or mineral-driven sauvignon blanc, the wine shows a grassy character with lime peel, peach, grapefruit and a pointed finish with enough acidity to keep things interesting.”

Examinier.com

“A crispy but fruity wine with a zesty punch."
