SAUVIGNON BLANC - CALIFORNIA

FLAPPER

It’s amazing how quickly American wine culture has progressed in such a short span of time. We remember, not that long ago, when wine was the domain of the ascot-wearing pencil-thin moustache crowd, droning on and on about the right way to serve this and the rules of pairing that. Fast forward to today, and the script has been flipped – wine is a daily beverage, and there is no right or wrong way to enjoy a delicious glass. Flapper is a beautiful, fresh and tasty Sauvignon Blanc with no rules and no requirements, perfect for drinking year round in any setting.

SAUVIGNON THE SPOT

With decades of experience under their collective belts, California winemakers have learned how to craft their Sauvignon Blancs into wines that are worthy of their place among the world’s best. The final product mimics the optimal climate – sunny, bright, warm and fresh. Flapper is a classic expression of Sauvignon Blanc, with a strong emphasis on fruit and minerality, with a lively vitality that transports you to the coastal California vineyards from which it originates.

Long, sunny days and cool, crisp nights are the perfect recipe for optimal ripeness and ripe fruit flavors in Sauvignon Blanc, while maintaining a fresh, clean acidic profile.  While California may not yet be recognized as one of the optimal locations for Sauvignon Blanc, the vinous proof is there, and the state is quickly making a name for itself as one of the best locations in the world for this classic grape variety.
