The Steelhead Sauvignon Blanc is a wine that is produced by Steelhead Vineyards. The wine itself is a great representative for California Sauvignon Blanc and its story behind it, makes it even better. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma County was founded thru a unique project partnership between trout unlimited and steelhead. The project started to give tribute to the steelhead and coho salmon as well as the restoration of their habitats in northern california waterways.
The wine shows great aromas of meyer-lemons, light floral notes, honeysuckle and apricote. The wine displays crisp minerality and has high acidity with a lingering citrus finish.
With only 13.5% volume, this wine is very refreshing and I would suggest our sea scallops, brie dumplings, and flounder with such wine.
