2018 Edna Valley Sauvignon Blanc

#19-2021

The Edna Valley is pretty much in the middle of California, about five miles inland from the coast, where the days are warm and the nights are cool. Its a good place to grow grapes, especially white ones like Sauvignon Blanc.

This Edna Valley Sauvignon Blanc has a fragrant nose with floral notes, which leads to pungent flavors 0f grapefruit and pear, with a mild hint of melon. There is good acidity and ripe fruit, which blend for a clean and crisp finish. The alcohol content is 13.1%, and Norm’s score is 88.

A bottle of Edna Valley is a good summertime choice for grilled chicken salad, or possibly next to a big platter of fresh fruit paired with soft white cheeses. If you plan a picnic before the weather gets hot, you will enjoy it with cold fried chicken.

Score: 88

Price: $11-$15
