McKenna 2019 Lodi Sauvignon Blanc
McKenna Sauvignon Blanc is our first wine released for the 2019 vintage. Therefore, we should expect a young, powerful and flavorful wine.
In the nose, we start with some floral notes, like honeysuckle and orange blossom. Then, some aromas of apricot, quince, grapefruit and pear take over in the attack. This Sauvignon Blanc is very dry and did not receive any oak treatment. There is a striking minerality which dominates the mouthfeel, along with some fruity flavors of mandarin and orange. The structure has medium-intensity and length. There is some acidity which provides balance, but it is not the main characteristic.
This varietal is known for pairing well with a wide range of dishes, like Asian-style salads, scallops, steamed mussels or chicken alfredo. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Gluten-Free Asian-Style Chicken Lettuce Wraps.
