J. Rickards "Pauli & Croft Vineyard", Sauvignon Blanc

J. Rickards "Pauli & Croft Vineyard", Sauvignon Blanc - 2022

Item # 42079 750mL

This incredible Sauvignon Blanc is produed from the Croft Vineyard, a unique parcel located at the southern end of the Alexander Valley. The vineyard was planted at an elevation 700 feet above the valley floor in a saddle that connects the Russian River AVA and the Alexander Valley AVA. This location allows the cooling fog from the coast to penetrate early in the morning, cooling off the vines and extending hang-time for the grapes.

Some are fermented in barrel, others in stainless steel. Some...

Alexander Valley

Cyrus Alexander, for whom the Alexander Valley is named, planted the region's first vineyard in 1846. Situated at the top of Sonoma County, with about 15,000 acres of highly-prized vineyards, today’s Alexander Valley encompasses a variety of microclimates, supporting a wide-range of grape varieties.
