2018 Edna Valley Sauvignon Blanc


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
