2018 Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc
Attorney Fred Furth, born in Harvey, Illinois purchased an undeveloped plot of land within Russian River Valley in 1972. He established his reputation in crafting award-winning Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The 1,300-acre estate is now owned by vintner Bill Foley of Foley Family Wines. This elegant 100% Sauvignon Blanc opens with a very pale color and a subtle bouquet of pink grapefruit and honeydew. Everything is built around a plush core of caramelized orange zest and passion fruit that come together in a nicely balanced package. It has plenty of finesse and is instantly appealing.
