Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
73% Sauvignon Blanc and 27% Muscat

Appearance: Pale straw

Aromas: Refreshingly aromatic with an abundance of citrus notes. Rich layers of lime zest, lemon, lychee, and orange blossom create a bright compelling nose.

Flavors: Vibrant layers of white peach and pineapple create a lush and round mouth feel, followed by a long finish of lychee, citrus, and apricot.

Vineyard Notes
After an unusually dry winter, Spring rainfall provided most of the seasons water for the growing season. April proved to be a roller coaster for the vines, offering up a mixture of wet weather and cold nights that required frost protection, followed by summer-like temperature spikes late in the month. From there, it was smooth sailing for the spring and summer. Lots of sunny, warm days brought Bloom 3-4 weeks ahead of 2011. As the nearly perfect conditions continued we kicked off the 2012 harvest, bringing in pristine clusters of Estate Sauvignon Blanc on August 17th. As the harvest progressed, the quality of the Sauvignon Blanc was exceptionally fine and the last came in on September 3rd.

One of our "bring backs" from our recent trip to San Francisco. We had the opportunity to visit Franciscan Estate Vineyards and taste this offering. Best table white we have had in a while, we got two. Only available direct from the vineyards, we will be back for more, this is one that goes into that "special time" wine storage vault. We broke one open when Erin, Madeline and Caroline visited last week.

We brought back a bottle of Fountain Court from our recent wine tasting trip to Franciscan. We love this wine, will finish the bottle this evening. I am planning to keep a case on hand for meals and gifts!

Purchased this wine last year during a road trip to Napa. The wine is so delicious, it's sinful. It would make a great Xmas gift.

Loved it. Too bad we can't order it. We live in Arizona. They don't ship out of state. Will get some when we go back..
