Gnarly Head Sauvignon Blanc is a standout. This refreshing white wine is bursting with aromas of bright citrus and nectarine that are followed by crisp flavors of honeydew melon and green Granny Smith apple on the palate. Medium-bodied with an opulent mouth feel, this wine extends into a lingering, zesty finish and pairs well with roasted artichoke salad with lemon and mint, grilled marinated shrimp, or pesto pasta.
The majority of the fruit for Gnarly Head Sauvignon Blanc is selected from vineyards in the San Bernabe region of Monterey. As one of the coolest growing regions in California, this vineyard contributes grapes with crisp, bright acidity and brilliant flavor concentration.
The grapes were carefully harvested during specific windows of time in which the varietal displayed the ideal balance of characteristics, then brought to the winery where they were gently pressed and transferred into stainless steel tanks. In order to retain the crisp acidity and fruity characters of the wine, this Sauvignon Blanc aged entirely in stainless steel.
