2017 Animo Heritage Sauvignon Blanc

In 2006, Michael Mondavi Family Estate acquired Sauvignon Blanc vine cuttings and propagated a new planting from Oakville’s ToKalon vineyard, known as the oldest surviving Sauvignon Blanc in North America. These cuttings trace their lineage directly to Château d’Yquem, arriving in California in the 1880’s through Charles Wetmore. When the new vineyard was established, Michael Mondavi Family Estate selected the same rootstock and trellising used in the 19th century to further preserve the historical method of grape growing and the remarkable living history of the plant’s genetic origins.

Aromas of freshly cut nectarine, kefir lime leaves, and lemongrass.The palate offers firm stone fruits of white peach and apricot, with cut green mango. Subtle yet prevalent elements of French oak add a viscosity with hints of hazelnut, balancing the fresh and razor-edge acidity.
